Article
Classifying papers according to the fields of knowledge is critical to clearly understand the dynamics of scientific (sub)fields, their leading questions, and trends. Most studies rely on journal categories defined by popular databases such as WoS or Scopus, but some experts find that those categories may not correctly map the existing subfields no...
Article
There is a literature gap regarding the period representativeness bias associated with sample selection in longitudinal bibliometric studies. The purpose of this paper is to analyse and compare, in terms of period representativeness, the common methods used for selecting a sample of the highly impactful papers in a field/ journal. Using 92 593 pape...

In a recent paper (https://doi.org/10.1007/s11192-020-03386-9) we proposed a model to estimate the citations of an article in a database (Scopus/Web of Science) in which it is not indexed using the percentile rank of the database (Web of Science/Scopus) in which it is indexed. In this study we supplement the previous work with three advances: (1) b...
Article
Full-text available
Recent studies have shown that the coverage of Scopus and Web of Science (WoS) databases differs substantially. Consequently, the citation counts of a paper are different depending on the database used, making it difficult to apply both together. To address this problem, this paper aims to examine whether the percentile- and stochastic-based approa...

Purpose-Based on the data obtained from a questionnaire of 595 people, the authors explore the relative importance of consumers, checking whether socioeconomic variables influence their centrality, detecting the communities within the network to which they belong, identifying consumption patterns and checking whether there is any relationship betwe...
Conference Paper
We studied the problem of how to identify the most impactful papers of a scientific field, for longitudinal bibliometric analyses or systematic literature reviews’ purposes. We show that using raw citation counts, the most popular approach, it is not suitable to compare papers from different periods. Other approaches, such as the use of normalized...

In the supply chain literature, among all the dimensions of sustainability, social sustainability remains the least explored (Ashby et al., 2012; Seuring and Muller, 2008a, b). Especially, studies on social sustainability in the supply chain of the Indian manufacturing industry are scant.

Article
Firms are increasingly under pressure to incorporate social sustainability practices into their operations and supply chain management strategies. The purpose of this research is to develop a taxonomy of the supply chain social sustainability (SCSS) practices adopted by firms. The methodology involves two steps. First, the taxonomy is built based o...
Article
Sustainability is gaining interest among academics and practitioners due to increased stakeholder awareness of environmental and social issues. However, relatively little research has been conducted on the extent to which firms have integrated social sustainability aspects into the management of their supply chains in emerging economies. The purpos...

This study analyzes Standard & Poor’s 500 Index top 250 companies’ responses to Bloomberg’s disclosed calculations of CEO pay ratios. The results suggest that CEO pay ratios, CEO compensations and average worker compensations do not seem to be related to the decision to respond. They also indicate that many of the corporations have adopted a strate...

DefinitionA supply chain consists of all parties (manufacturers, suppliers, transporters, warehouses, retailers, and customers) and, within each organization, all the functions involved, directly or indirectly, in fulfilling a customer request (Chopra and Meindl 2010). Exactly what is supply chain management (SCM) is still being debated. While some...

When it comes to Sports Management, in the absence of techniques and tools developed specifically for managing sports organizations and taking into account the specificities of its core business, we must not rely simply on a better practices approach. Instead, we must turn to the systematic approach offered by business schools. There are good examp...

In this paper we provide a different way to estimate matrices B and D, in subspace identification algorithms. The starting point was the method proposed by Van Overschee and De Moor (1996) - the only one applying subspace ideas to the estimation of those matrices. We have derived new (and simpler) expressions and we found that the method proposed b...
