Cambridge Business & Economics Conference best papers and Anne Tsui
Article Type: Editorial From: Journal of Technology Management in China, Volume 9, Issue 3
Welcome to Volume 9, Issue 3. We currently have remained at an h-index of 18, but our g-index has increased from 24 to 25 with a total of 1,164 citations – an increase of 108 since the last issue. Our age-weighted citation rate has increased from 200.25 to 229.51. I just completed some interesting additional analyses about the journal. At this point, there have been 23 articles published in the JTMC since I took over as editor, and prior to my becoming editor, the articles had been cited a total of 626 times (articles have been cited 3 additional times since I did that analysis). The 23 articles included 1,128 references (including suggestions for further reading). In line with good editorial and publishing practice, I have recently been discussing self-citation rates with my Publisher, and would like to share some analysis with readers. In the 23 articles there are 65 references to JTMC articles and 4 to articles from the Journal of Management History (JMH; another journal for which I am Editor-in-Chief). The JMH also has 4 citations to JTMC articles out of 5,236 references. So, we have 5.76 per cent of the citations to JTMC articles coming from the JTMC and have 0.35 per cent coming from the JMH for a grand total of 6.12 per cent – no where even close to 20 per cent. Another way of looking at it, however, is that 65 of the 535 new citations were from the JTMC, but that still results in 12.15 per cent of the new references coming from the JTMC and 4 of the 535 [0.75 per cent] coming from the JMH – not too shabby if you ask me.
In this issue, we once again have seven articles and one interview with a leading researcher in the field. We begin the issue with an interview of Anne Tsui, Past President of the Academy of Management. Her work has been cited 15,117 times in the last 34 years, and she has an h-index of 52 and a g-index of 122. She has an AWCR of 1,094.81 and is likely best known for her international work on relational demography. She started first grade in Shanghai and completed her primary school, second school and two years of teaching college in Hong Kong, while she completed her bachelor, master and doctorate degrees in the USA. She has many excellent ideas for research and should be held up as a model of the types of academics that are highly needed.
After the interview, we then have seven articles associated with the Cambridge Business & Economics Conference held at Murray Edwards Collage at Cambridge University, including one by the founder of the conference. The first article is “Intelligence and Job Satisfaction in the USA and China” by Cassandra Thompson of Global Semiconductor Alliance and Samuel Lane of Lane Import, which also includes suggestions for future research based on Professor Tsui’s research. This is followed by “Health Care Infrastructure Amenities – An Empirical Examination of Indian Perspective” by Atul Gupta of Lynchburg College, Ipseeta Satpathy and B .Chandra Mohan Patnaik of KIIT University in Odisha, India, and Niharika Patel of Lynchburg College.
This is followed by “The Effects of Culture on Leadership Styles in China, Germany, and Russia” by Jessie Richardson of IBM, Phil Millage of Inspire Consulting Inc., Jacob Millage of Indiana Wesleyan University and Samuel Lane of Lane Import. Sam was the founding Associate Editor for the International Journal of Family Business and is a regular reviewer for the Journal of Technology Management in China and Phil Millage is one of the top Executive Coaches. This is followed by “Understanding and Overcoming Business Etiquette Differences in Japan, Turkey, and the USA” by Brooke Eckard Marchiori of Eckard Global, Charles E. Carraher of Florida Atlantic University and Kristi Stiles of Hallmark. Charles E. Carraher is in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Associate Director of the Florida Center for Environmental Studies at Florida Atlantic University. His area of expertise is Polymer Chemistry and he is a Fellow of both the American Institute of Chemists and the American Chemical Society, as well as having received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Chemical Society and was the longest serving member of the accreditation committee for the ACS. In 1974, the Royal Academy of Science named him as the top expert in the world in metal containing polymers, and in 1998, he received an official nomination for the Nobel Prize but unfortunately he did not win it that year. He jointly holds the patent for the first fully synthetic synthesis of a nucleic acid (the underlying basis of DNA testing) and has materials he invented on the Moon and Mars, as well as stealth aircraft, in microcomputers, and within numerous anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-cancer agents. He has over 1,000 publications and taught some of the top materials scientists in China.
The next article is “A Retail Perspective on Shopping Behavior, Cultures, and Personalities for China, United Arab, Belgium, India, Germany, and America” by Taylor Thomas of the University of Texas at Dallas and Charles E. Carraher of Florida Atlantic University; then we have “Increasing Productivity in the Big 4: A research note” by Chereen Pasha of Ernst & Young. The final paper is “Cross-cultural, values, and ethics differences and similarities between the USA and Asian Countries” by Fredi Garcia, Diana Mendez, Chris Ellis and Casey Gautney.
I trust that you will enjoy these articles and that they will provide you with excellent ideas for future research.
