~ In top 1% of most cited 1% researchers

June 6, 2018. Shanghai – Professor Jiing-Lih Larry Farh, Distinguished Chair Professor of Management and ABN AMRO Chair in Management at China Europe International Business School, is among the academic elite in the field of economics and business. He is among the top 1% of the most cited 1% researchers. This is based on the impact made by his articles published between 2004 and 2015. 

The results are from an article published in the May issue of Scientometrics that analysed 2,140 highly cited papers in the field, the work of 4,499 authors from 914 universities in 64 countries/territories.  The paper identified a total of 76 top scientists with 5 or more highly cited papers.  Dr. Farh is the only mainland China researcher to make the list. The complete *article, “A bibliometric analysis of highly cited papers in the field of Economics and Business based on the Essential Science Indicators database” is available here.  

Prof. Farh has a track record of producing scholarly work that makes an impact, with over 15,000 Google Scholar citations and over 4,300 Web of Science citations. His co-edited book, with Xiao-Ping Chen and Anne Tsui, on research methodology for Chinese management research (published by Peking University Press) is the best-selling methodology text book in graduate management studies in China. He has also published more than 20 articles in top-tier management journals

Prof. Farh’s current research focuses on management theories as adapted and practiced in Chinese contexts. He is best known for his seminal works on Chinese leadership (paternalistic leadership model), organisational citizenship behaviour in Chinese contexts, guanxi and trust, and how personal values of traditionality and power distance affect employee work behaviour.
