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.

Garbinsky, Emily, Nicole L. Mead, and Daniel Gregg (2021). "Popping the Positive Illusion of Financial Responsibility Can Increase Personal Savings: Applications in Emerging and Western Markets", Journal of Marketing (Special Issue: Better Marketing for a Better World), 85(3), 97-112.

Open Access Download

Abstract People around the world are not saving enough money. The authors propose that one reason people undersave is because they hold the positive illusion of being financially responsible. If this conjecture is correct, then deflating this inflated self-view may increase saving, as people should become motivated to restore perceptions of financial responsibility. After establishing that people do hold the illusion of financial responsibility, the authors developed an intervention that combats this self-enhancing bias by triggering people to recognize their frequent engagement in superfluous spending. This superfluous-spender intervention increased saving by enhancing people’s motivation to restore their diminished perceptions of financial responsibility. Consistent with theorizing, the intervention increased saving only when superfluous spending was under one’s control and among those who were motivated to perceive themselves as financially responsible. In addition to increasing saving in Western countries, the superfluous-spender intervention increased saving of earned income and a financial windfall over time among chronically poor coffee growers in rural Uganda. Collectively, this work shows that people view their financial responsibility through rose-colored glasses, which can undermine their financial well-being. It also endows stakeholders with a simple, practical, and inexpensive intervention that offsets this bias to increase personal savings.

Devine, A. and McCollum, M. (2019). "Understanding Social System Drivers of Green Building Innovation Adoption in Emerging Market Countries: The Role of Foreign Direct Investment", Cities, 92, 303-317.

View Paper

Abstract There has been a growing academic focus on the economic, environmental, and social implications of sustainable innovation adoption. This work has largely focused on the developed world, yet the majority of people and future economic growth lies in the developing world. Further, most research examines micro data on consumers or firms, limiting what is known regarding the role of macro factors on diffusion, such as social systems. Addressing these limitations, this research provides the first high-level insights into how green building adoption is occurring in developing countries. Utilizing a hand-collected dataset of all green building certification activity in 97 emerging market countries over fifteen years, we examine the relationship between economic development and green building adoption. We find the use of international certification programs is far more common than domestic programs, and that domestic programs have only been originated in advanced emerging economies. Additionally, we observe a relationship between foreign direct investment into emerging markets countries and the proliferation of green building, and that in most cases, domestic certification programs only originate after international certification activity has been introduced to the local economy. Our findings carry economic and policy implications, worthy of consideration by both those interested in offering and attracting foreign investment in emerging market countries.

Belk, R. and Suarez, M. (2017). "Cultural Resonance of Global Brands in Brazilian Social Movements", International Marketing Review, 34(4), 480-497.

Open Access Download

Abstract The research analyzes the presence of two global brands – Fiat and International Federation of Association Football – in Brazilian demonstrations in conjunction with the 2014 World Cup. The purpose of this paper is to extend the brand cultural resonance construct and highlights its boundary-straddling nature. The analysis reveals the dynamics of brand meanings established including why some brands have their meanings enriched through collective appropriation, while others become vessels of negative content and targets of anti-consumption movements.

Kipping, M. and Lubinski, C. (2015). "Translating Potential into Profits: Foreign Multinationals in Emerging Markets Since the Nineteenth Century", Management & Organizational History, 10(2), 93-102.

View Paper

Abstract Emerging markets trigger great expectations. Many foreign multinationals are eager to exploit the entrepreneurial opportunities potentially related to less developed but fast growing markets. This is not a new phenomenon. Multinationals from more developed countries have for long searched for opportunities in less developed markets and have dealt with the related challenges. Foreign environments with different needs and capabilities, unstable institutions and policies, stark fluctuations in the macroeconomic environment and unrealistic expectations are just some of the obstacles for ‘turning potential into profits.’ The history of multinational enterprises (MNEs) knows many examples of economies with these characteristics similar to modern understandings of ‘emerging markets.’ This special issue analyzes foreign multinationals in emerging markets from a historical perspective. It seeks to understand changes and continuities in the opportunities and challenges less developed markets presented for MNEs, and in the various ways in which their managers responded to these. Rather than relying on the ‘emerging market’ label, we ask (1) why managers perceived certain markets as ‘emerging’ and which expectations they had when investing in these markets, (2) which challenges they faced there, and (3) how they subsequently addressed them. By tracing and comparing these investments and their consequences over time (and space), we hope to shed more light on managerial decisions and understand to what extent they were shaped by the specific context or, possibly, had more of a timeless nature – with the findings ultimately intended to help inform contemporary decision-making. This introduction to the special issue describes the framework for the following six papers on foreign multinationals in emerging markets since the nineteenth century.

Sadorsky, P. (2014). "Modeling Volatility And Correlations Between Emerging Market Stock Prices and the Prices Of Copper, Oil and Wheat", Energy Economics, 43, 72-81.

View Paper

Abstract Increased financial integration between countries and the financialization of commodity markets are providing investors with new ways to diversify their investment portfolios. This paper uses VARMA-AGARCH and DCC-AGARCH models to model volatilities and conditional correlations between emerging market stock prices, copper prices, oil prices and wheat prices. The dynamic conditional correlation model is found to fit the data the best and used to generate dynamic conditional correlations, hedge ratios and optimal portfolio weights. Emerging market stock prices and oil prices display leverage effects where negative residuals tend to increase the variance (conditional volatility) more than positive ones. Correlations between these assets increased considerably after 2008, and have yet to return to their pre 2008 values. On average, oil provides the cheapest hedge for emerging market stock prices while copper is the most expensive but given the variability in the hedge ratios, one should probably not put too much emphasis on average hedge ratios.

Bae, K., Purda, L., Welker, M. and Zhong, L. (2013). "Credit Rating Initiation and Accounting Quality for Emerging Market Firms", Journal of International Business Studies, 44, 216-234.

View Paper

Abstract We examine whether certification by an internationally recognized information intermediary helps emerging-market firms overcome the liability of foreignness in capital markets. Specifically, we ask whether securing a credit rating from Standard & Poor's (S&P) enables these firms to certify their financial reporting quality. We hypothesize that the unique information demands of lenders motivate firms to provide more conservative financial statements upon securing an S&P rating. We find evidence consistent with this conjecture. Moreover, the rating appears to be part of an international expansion strategy for these firms, and is followed by increased international activity in capital and product markets.
