Japanese‐focused management papers were examined to answer four questions: (1) Has there been a relative increase in the proportion of Japanese‐focused papers published? (2) Has there been a relative increase in the proportion of Japanese‐focused Organizational Behavior (OB) papers published? (3) What is the nature of Japanese‐focused OB papers? and (4) Are there “gaps” in the Japanese‐focused OB literature? This paper concludes that there was no increase in the proportion of Japanese‐focused OB papers published between 1981 and 1993. There were topical “gaps” in the Japanese‐focused OB literature considered Most empirical papers dealt with OB on an individual level. Papers related to personality; motivation; and satisfaction, absences, and turnover were conspicuously absent from the sample.
