Key authors in business and management education (BME) with a bibliometric analysis of economic education scholarship by gender
This study examines productivity in Business and Management Education (BME) scholarship, identifying the “top 96” BME authors of the last decade, extending the author productivity conversation initiated by Arbaugh et al. (2017), and exploring the degree to which women feature in the list. The rankings proved very dynamic: approximately 55% of the top-ranked authors are new to the list, with 38% of those authors being female. The BME field continues to offer opportunities for establishing a profile as a highly productive author, since barriers for entry into the list remain relatively low: five articles continue to be the threshold for inclusion. Accounting expanded its dominance over other disciplines, with the number of accounting education scholars ranked increasing from 28 to 34. The number of highly productive authors affiliated with institutions outside of the United States has increased significantly when compared to the 2005–2014 study, suggesting that the call for wider international participation in BME scholarship is beginning to produce movement. We document differences in the content of the scholarship produced by leading male and female authors in economic education, noting that those differences tend to blend when they work together.
