Research with Impact: 16 research articles accepted into top journals

Professor Peter Buckley OBE, Professor Jeremy Clegg and Dr Hinrich Voss have recently had two articles accepted for publication in the Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS).

Earlier this year they also received The JIBS Decade Award for their article 'The Determinants of Chinese Outward Foreign Direct Investment’. The prestigious award is given annually to the most impactful article to have appeared in the journal ten years prior. 

The Journal of International Business is rated 4* in the Chartered Association of Business School's Academic Journal Guide 2015, the highest quality ranking possible.

The Guide is based upon peer review, editorial and expert judgements following the evaluation of many hundreds of publications, and is informed by statistical information relating to citation. It is a guide to the range, subject matter and relative quality of journals in which business and management academics publish their research.

The two accepted articles include:

  • 'Risk propensity in the foreign direct investment location decision of emerging multinationals'
  • 'A retrospective and agenda for future research on Chinese outward FDI'
