Citation-Preferences In “Schmalenbachs Zeitschrift Für Betriebswirtschaftliche Forschung” And “Schmalenbach Business Review”


  • Thomas Albrecht


Over the last decade, the sources cited in papers published in “Schmalenbachs Zeitschrift für betriebswirtschaftliche Forschung” exhibit a strong, continuing trend towards more English-language citations. Furthermore, throughout the whole sample period, the English citations are more likely to be from older sources than are German citations, which could imply that English sources contain more insights of lasting importance. Over time, citations of journal articles have increased, whereas books are cited less often. However, this shift seems to be due to the increasing role of English citations, because English-language sources are much more likely to be journal articles. Finally, in terms of total number of citations, the major English-language journals rival their German counterparts.
