Management Professor is Named World’s Most Prolific Overseas Chinese Strategy Scholar
November 16, 2015
Yadong Luo, the School’s Emery Findley Distinguished Chair and professor of management, is the world's most prolific Chinese strategy scholar outside of mainland China according to the October 2015 issue of the Asia Pacific Journal of Management. The ranking is based on a study of articles published on what the researchers call the “eight most strategy-relevant journals.” These include the Academy of Management Journal, the Academy of Management Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, the Journal of International Business Studies, Organization Science, the Strategic Management Journal, the Asia Pacific Journal of Management, and Management and Organization Review.
The study shows that Luo has published more articles in these journals than any other overseas Chinese scholar. The study also ranked the scholars by the number of citations of their articles. Luo is ranked No. 2 on that list behind only Mike W. Peng of the University of Texas at Dallas.
“Based on multiple ranking and mapping methods, Yadong Luo and mike W. Peng are found to be the most impactful scholars in both terms of quantity and quality contributions,” noted the study authors. “Our ranking and mapping analysis can provide useful information for mainland Chinese universities and scholars to identify research collaborators among overseas Chinese strategy scholars,” they added.
Luo has published well over 100 articles in major refereed journals in international business and management. He has also authored more than a dozen books and about 100 other publications. His research interests include global corporate strategy, global corporate governance, international joint ventures, and management in emerging economies, among others. His writing on the recent development of business and management in emerging markets, most notably China, is particularly path-breaking and offers a wealth of understanding of this critical context and business activities that are unfolding there.
