The development of IB as a scientific field
Umeå University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Sociology.
2018 (English)In: International Business Review, ISSN 0969-5931, E-ISSN 1873-6149, Vol. 27, no 5, p. 1080-1088Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

International business (IB) is today an established field in business studies with two professional associations and numerous academic publications. However, it is much younger than many other fields in the management area. Although economists were focusing on international issues even before, it was not until after the Second World War that IB started to emerge as a scientific field. The purpose of this paper is to analyse this development from the early days up to the present time. In so doing, using a theoretical framework, it focuses on the organizing of the field, i.e. how early informal contacts eventually led to the formation of formal organizations, the launching of journals, and with the passage of time the publishing of handbooks. The paper provides empirical evidence of all these steps. In this way it presents data on significant contributions to the field.
