Professors honored for their contributions to Journal of International Business Studies
Rutgers Business School professors John Cantwell and Farok Contractor were among the scholars recognized by the Academy of International Business (AIB) for their exceptional contributions to the Journal of International Business Studies.
The Journal of International Business Studies is the leading academic journal for the field of International Business and the official publication of the Academy of International Business.
The list of gold, silver and platinum award winners was announced in early 2019 in celebration of the journal’s 50th Anniversary. Recipients were recognized during the AIB Conference in Copenhagen in June.
Cantwell, a distinguished professor of management and global business, received a gold medal for his outstanding services as editor-in-chief of the Journal of International Business Studies. He served as editor-in-chief from 2011 to 2016. Cantwell shares a gold medal award with Bill Dymsza, a former Rutgers Business School professor.
Professor Contractor, who is also a distinguished professor of management and global business, received a silver medal for his scholarly publications in the journal. Nine articles written by Contractor have been published in the Journal of International Business Studies. To be considered for the silver award, a scholar is required to have submitted at least five significant papers and be an IB scholar.
“Globally, there are 4,500 to 5,000 researchers in the field of international business,” said Rutgers Business School Dean Lei Lei. “We are very proud that several of their top scholars are with Rutgers Business School.”
