In this paper we examine the work by Peter Buckley and Mark Casson (1976), “The future of the multinational enterprise”, contribution to international business research. In this work, the Buckley and Casson conceptualized one of the foundational theories for International Business (IB) research in the past three decades: internalization theory. Our bibliometric study examines the entire track record of publications in the leading journal for IB research – Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS) – between 1976 and 2010, that cite Buckley and Casson’s 81976) work. The analyses of citations, co-citations and themes permit us analyze the impact of the Internalization theory, and of Buckley and Casson (1976) in specific, in IB research. Conceptually founded on the internalization theory for the study of multinational corporations and the internationalization of firms, the ramifications extend to several domains of the discipline and make this one of the most salient works of the past three decades.
