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 In Barnett, Henriques, and Husted (2020), we argued that, in the aggregate, the digital age has not given stakeholders greater influence over firm behaviors. In their Exchange article, Jimenez, Xu, and Bennett (2021) agreed with our broad model of stakeholder influence in the digital age but suggested that the model does not account for independent, owner-managed small businesses interacting with local stakeholders in crisis situations. In our response here, we explore the implications of the two factors that underpin their argument—firm size and firm–stakeholder proximity—for stakeholder influence in the digital age. We conclude that some scenarios associated with these two factors are worth further investigation, but they do not fundamentally alter the dynamics of stakeholder influence in the digital age that we identified in Barnett et al. (2020), even for small, independent firms in crisis situations.

Abstract Have stakeholders increased their influence over firm behavior in the digital age? We draw from cognitive theory to argue that although social media has made it easier for stakeholders to broadcast their demands, the methods used to cope with the drastic change in quantities and qualities of information in the digital age have limited stakeholder influence in the aggregate. Even secondary stakeholders now have the ability to engage mass audiences, but the likelihood of success of most stakeholders’ efforts to alter firm behavior has been constrained amid the torrent of information flows. We develop a revised framework that accounts for the cognitive mechanisms that buffer firm–stakeholder relationships from change and thereby limit the overall effects of the digital age on stakeholder influence over firm behavior.
