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 This article examines the dynamic process through which business sustainability becomes embedded as a strategic imperative of the firm. Using inductive theory building on 15 case studies of companies operating in Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, and Egypt, the author traces an eight-phase process that tracks how firms develop lucrative operational capabilities in response to pervasive contextual issues, how the role of convergent contradiction across the firm and its stakeholders precipitates a shift in thinking, and how firms and their stakeholders collectively theorize to develop complementary capabilities, the product of which enables significant economic and social value creation and firm strategic differentiation.
