主 题：Knowledge Structure in Product- and Brand-Origin-Related Research: A Longitudinal Examination and Conceptual Framework
主讲人：Brian R. Chabowski (The University of Tulsa)
Scholarly research regarding origins of products and brands is deep-rooted within international marketing, with an extraordinary following as evidenced by the large body of knowledge that is continuing to evolve. The goal in this research is to examine this domain, generically referred to as the country-of-origin (CO) literature, and identify important topical influences forming its intellectual foundations across three time periods. Using co-citation analysis and multidimensional scaling, spatial representations of the CO literature are developed to identify new research directions with the goal of advancing the field. The database used consists of 428 articles, extracted from the Web of Science, that contain 28,093 citations, and which we divide into three time periods (1980-2004, 2005-2014, and 2015-2017). This longitudinal comparison reveals the development of the CO literature's foundations over time and provides a basis for discussing further progress. A conceptual framework is developed based on these results to unfold novel topics and research directions that will benefit from closer scholarly inquiry. Using this framework, several critical areas are identified that will both complement and advance the field.
