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 The platformisation of digital consumption, means that increasingly many of the things that we call ours – our messages, photos, music, achievements – are entangled in complex socio-technical arrangements which require ongoing market mediation. In this context, refining our understanding of what digital possessions are and how to study them is vital. This requires refocusing research away from existing comparative analyses between digital and material possessions. To do so, we organized an interdisciplinary roundtable discussion with critical marketers and digital media scholars, consumer researchers, digital sociologists and researchers in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) at the 11th Interpretive Consumer Research Conference held in Lyon in May 2019. The result of that discussion is this curation of comments which deal with theoretical, methodological and critical issues and a bold agenda for future research.

Abstract In this paper, we investigate the ways in which new forms of organization enabled by digital technologies, such as crowdsourcing and digital marketplaces, are allowing firms to circumvent and defy traditional knowledge constraints. This is part of the broader question of when and why these forms of organization are more efficient relative to alternatives, given that some firms simultaneously utilize crowdsourcing, marketplaces, and traditional forms of organization. We observe that an important cluster of these new organizational forms are able to circumvent knowledge constraints, because they combine elements of market and hierarchical organization in firm-designed hybrid arrangements. We further categorize these firm-designed markets into one-sided market arrangements (crowds) and two-sided market arrangements (marketplaces). To explain their efficiency relative to hierarchies and relative to each other, we take a knowledge-based perspective and review ways in which firm-designed markets reduce or remove both first-order (known unknown) and second-order (unknown unknown) knowledge constraints compared with hierarchies. Our argument hinges on the notion that firm-designed markets provide semidirected and undirected search and generativity mechanisms that allow firms to go beyond what is possible with centrally directed search.
