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 "We analyze a firm's investment in environmental process improvement (EPI) to reduce the environmental impact (EI) of its manufacturing processes in relation to various internal firm characteristics and in response to different external regulatory drivers. We provide a deep understanding of how these internal and external forces cause the firm to pursue EPI earlier or later in the planning horizon and at an increasing or a decreasing rate over time. In particular, we show how a regulator can drive different patterns of EPI over time through subsidies for EPI or penalties for EI. We also explore the impacts of two key operational capabilities of the firm—the production‐cost efficiency of EPI and the effectiveness of EPI in reducing EI—on the rate of EPI over time. We demonstrate that improvements in these operational capabilities contrastingly alter the timing of investments in EPI. Lastly, we demonstrate that a firm capable of leveraging EPI to enhance product functionality or command a reputational premium in the marketplace pursues a remarkably different pattern of EPI over time compared to a cost‐focused firm that only responds to regulatory forces.
