Research in Management: Analysis of Publications
Based on the publication records sourced from the Web of Science database, we examine the features and trends of publications in management studies in South Africa. The analysis covers the period 1966–2015, consisting of 1294 publications. The racial and gender backgrounds of the authors are collected and examined. The analysis demonstrates the features of publications across distinctive historical periods. It also reveals the unique features of the publications in terms of the author’s gender, race, sector, institution, department and province. The inter-relationship between race, gender, sector, institution and coauthorship is remarkable in the field. The findings have implications for the future of the discipline in South Africa.
