Publications Database

Welcome to the new Schulich Peer-Reviewed Publication Database!

The database is currently in beta-testing and will be updated with more features as time goes on. In the meantime, stakeholders are free to explore our faculty’s numerous works. The left-hand panel affords the ability to search by the following:

  • Faculty Member’s Name;
  • Area of Expertise;
  • Whether the Publication is Open-Access (free for public download);
  • Journal Name; and
  • Date Range.

At present, the database covers publications from 2012 to 2020, but will extend further back in the future. In addition to listing publications, the database includes two types of impact metrics: Altmetrics and Plum. The database will be updated annually with most recent publications from our faculty.

If you have any questions or input, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Abstract Exploration-exploitation research to date has not properly addressed the issue of multiple performance dimensions and their potential trade-offs, especially in the context of start-ups where unique performance dimensions such as acquisition likelihood are relevant and coveted. This paper utilizes the recently completed Kauffman Firm Survey data to investigate the relationship between exploration- exploitation and the profitability, survival, and acquisition likelihood of start-ups simultaneously and to investigate potential trade-offs among these performance dimensions. A balance-is-best relationship is found for profitability of survived firms and for the acquisition likelihood of high tech firms, while an exploitation focus is found to maximize the survival chances of low and medium tech firms. For low and medium technology start-ups our findings are consistent with a trade-off between survival likelihood and profitability-given-survival, and for high tech start-ups our findings are consistent with a differently shaped trade-off between acquisition likelihood and profitability-given-survival.

Abstract We investigate the rapid internationalization of many multinationals from emerging economies through acquisition in advanced economies. We conceptualize these acquisitions as an act and form of entrepreneurship, aimed to overcome the ‘liability of emergingness’ incurred by these firms and to serve as a mechanism for competitive catch‐up through opportunity seeking and capability transformation. Our explanation emphasizes (1) the unique asymmetries (and not necessarily advantages) distinguishing emerging multinationals from advanced economy multinationals due to their historical and institutional differences, as well as (2) a search for advantage creation when firms possess mainly ordinary resources. The argument shifts the central focus from advantage to asymmetries as the starting point for internationalization and, additionally, highlights the role of learning agility rather than ability as a potential ‘asset of emergingness.’
