Measuring the Degree of Internationalization of a firm: A Comment
AbstractSullivan's  suggestion that an index measure of the internationalization construct is superior to single-variable measures is critiqued on psychometric, content validity, criterion validity, reliability, and utilitarian grounds. We argue that internationalization is more complex than envisioned by this index and suggest that further refinement of the construct is necessary before constructing indices.© 1996 JIBS.
