Research trends in the Academy of Management publications
Journal of Management and Marketing Research
Major research areas from 1958 to 2009 were examined in the four journals of the Academy of Management indexed by the online database Business Source Complete (through EBSCO). Research topic areas are identified that (1) have received the most scholarly attention over the years, (2) have fallen out of favor, and (3) have re-emerged after falling out of favor. Possible explanations are discussed for why certain management research topics gain or lose popularity over time and identified directions for future research.
