Abstract

In their assessment of research published in three international business journals,Thomas, Shenkar, and Clarke (1994) described a body of work characterized by low levels of internationalization We extend their research by reviewing 1439 articles published from 2000 to 2008 in four core international business journals Although we find that the shadow of US dominance continues to lie over the field, we also find evidence of increasing research and authorship diversity Although the representation of nations is uneven and cultural diversity levels remain low, we conclude that international business research has entered a new era of research internationalism.
