Posted 7.28.16Study authors analyzed articles from seven top-tier academic journals in business management using four different criteria for measuring. Shane came out on top across all four methodologies.
In a study recently published in the New England Journal of Entrepreneurship, "Entrepreneurship Research in Management and Organization Studies: A Contribution-Based Assessment of the Literature," authors identified Scott Shane, PhD, as ranking first among top research scholars in the field of entrepreneurship, a rapidly growing area of research interest. Shane is the A. Malachi Mixon III Professor of Entrepreneurial Studies and professor of economics at the Weatherhead School of Management.
The purpose of this study is to identify the researchers and universities that have had the greatest influence on entrepreneurship research from 2000-2015. The authors analyzed articles from seven top-tier academic journals in business management using four different criteria for measuring, adjusted and unadjusted for journal quality. Shane was ranked in the top spot across all four methodologies used to rate individual researchers.
“This is a fabulous outcome not only for Scott, but for Weatherhead itself and across the university,” said Rob Widing, PhD, dean and Albert J. Weatherhead III Professor of Management.
