Business school faculty and administrators in Asia often ask their foreign colleagues: Why won’t your journals publish our research? What kind of research should we conduct in order to have the chance to have it published in international journals? This is no idle talk; these urgent and sincere questions arise in the face of impending promotion and tenure decisions under university or government rules calling for publication in international journals. Such external publications often are an important consideration in these decisions that are widely believed to make or break academic careers.
