PLACE:Room 1008, Business Building
TOPIC:International Services and Guanxi
SPEAKER:Dr. Brian R. Chabowski(Associate Professor of Marketing at the University of Tulsa)

Academics examining the international services phenomenon draw from a well-established literature base emphasizing the general services topic as well as the more specific international marketing theme. Based on 153 articles containing 8,545 citations drawn from the Web of Science (WOS), this project unfolds the intellectual foundations of this domain using bibliometric approaches as a means of developing a better understanding of the international services topic. The intention of this portion of the presentation is to assess this subject and develop a proposed framework for future international services research directions.
A similar approach is used with regard to the guanxi literature, as well. Employing co-citation analysis as a basis for the study, this research includes 541 articles with 37,659 citations from the WOS database. In fact, a longitudinal evaluation of this research topic is accomplished by contrasting the 1988-2007 and 2008-2017 time periods. Using network theory, the results lend themselves to the proposal of specific future research directions in the guanxi domain which are based on the established literature.
