Martin Eisend, Susanne Schmidt: The influence of knowledge-based resources and business scholars’ internationalization strategies on research performance

Abstract

This study investigates how business research scholars’ internationalization strategies influence theirresearch performance and how this relationship is moderated by the availability of different knowledge-based resources. The authors analyze citations to journal articles authored by business research scholarswith German affiliations and examine how the number of citations is determined by international col-laborations and a researcher’s knowledge resources in terms of language skills, research experience, andforeign market knowledge. The results demonstrate that the augmentation of complementary knowledgeresources (i.e., when researchers lack language skills and foreign market knowledge) positively influ-ences the performance of a collaboration-based internationalization strategy (i.e., collaborations withinternational researchers). The collaboration-based strategy also improves performance for less expe-rienced researchers, but this advantage diminishes with increasing research experience. The findingsprovide further insights into drivers of scholars’ research performance and have practical implicationsfor science policy.
