Abstract

High-quality research methods underpin strong scholarship in international business (IB) research. This book is a testimony to the maturity of the field and highlights both how far we have come and how far we still have to go. In this chapter, we first reiterate the importance of applying sound research methods while conducting IB research, and then proceed to identify a number of particularly salient methodological challenges facing scholars in IB research. We next review some key points in the Commentaries and Reflections that accompany the JIBS articles selected for this volume. Our chapter ends with a set of general recommendations to IB scholars in the pursuit of continuous high-quality scholarship.
