My research expertise as well as interests lie in the internationalisation processes and location strategies of firms. In addition to that I am also interested in methodological issues in cross-country research with a specific focus on using survey "big" data as well as the application of both responsible qualitative and quantitative methods in the international business and management scholarship and practice. My work has been published widely in various leading academic journals, conferences, books and other outlets within the academic communities I belong to.
Have fun browsing through some of my work!
Abstract: Many strategic decisions made by firms involve a choice among several discrete alternatives. International Business (IB) scholars are often interested in modelling the factors that potentially influence these (multinomial) choices: these factors might include not only characteristics of the firms making the choices but also attributes of the alternative choices. This paper provides a succinct and intuitive introduction to the possible applications of multinomial choice models in IB research. We briefly outline the theory behind discrete choice modelling, and then explain how multinomial choice models may be estimated (including how the datasets need to be formatted) and how the significance of the coefficient estimates as well as the diagnostic statistics may be tested and interpreted.
Knight, G., Chidlow, A., & Minbaeva, D. (2022) Methodological Fit for Empirical Research in International Business: A Contingency Framework. Journal of International Business Studies, 53(1): 39-52 (Link).
Abstract: We seek to complement and extend the article by Welch, Piekkari, Plakoyiannaki, and Paavilainen-Mäntymäki (J Int Bus Stud 42:740–762, 2011), winner of the 2021 JIBS Decade Award, which advanced knowledge on case-based theory development in international business (IB). Similarly, we examine dimensions of scholarly inquiry across qualitative and quantitative research, using inductive and deductive approaches. Recent years have featured unprecedented growth in the volume and availability of data from diverse national contexts, offering novel opportunities for innovative research. Accordingly, we build on the logic of Welch et al. (2011) not only to elaborate on but also to call for a more pluralistic view of data and methodology. We advocate using a wider range of data and advanced methods in IB research, framed at the appropriate stage of theory development. We examine the interplay among theory, research design, data, and analytical technique, highlighting the role of data in methodological pluralism. While IB scholars have favored confirmatory approaches in deductive theory building, we argue for more exploratory research using both qualitative and quantitative data. We develop a contingency framework that highlights the stages of theory development, across the nexus of exploratory/confirmatory and qualitative/quantitative approaches, to guide empirical scholarship. We conclude by calling for triangulation and adopting the most appropriate combination of theory, research design, data, and analytical technique, to develop theory in IB research.
Pegoraro, D. De Propris, L., & Chidlow, A. (2022) Regional factors enabling manufacturing reshoring strategies: A case study perspective. Journal of International Business Policy, 5:122-133 (Link).
Abstract: Firms’ reshoring strategies have recently sparked academic and policy interest due to their contribution to rebalancing advanced economies. In line with the ongoing debate and by examining the journey of a company based in the West Midlands region of the UK, this work illustrates the adoption of a manufacturing reshoring strategy in response to a changing competitive environment. Further, by utilizing a mixture of primary and secondary data, this work not only shows how regional dynamics are pivotal for attracting manufacturing reshoring but also how regional characteristics can change the narrative on reshoring from a national to a regional focus. By doing so, this work demonstrates how regional implementation of industrial policies can facilitate a multiplier effect in the value of the region by increasing the attractiveness of hosting a manufacturing reshoring strategy (Link).

Abstract: This study introduces the concepts of translational distance and complexity distance to explain challenges to adoption of research methods in JIBS. We examine three analytical techniques and data collection approaches: (1) Heckman models, (2) ethnographic studies, and (3) data collection equivalence procedures in survey-based research. We note that progress has been made to reduce translational and complexity distance for analytical techniques. However, concerns remain for data collection equivalence and ethnography as IB scholars are using increasingly advanced analytical techniques on less credible data.
Chidlow, A., Wang, J., Liu, X., & Wei, Y. (2021) A co-evolution perspective of EMNE internationalization and institutions: An integrative framework of 5Cs. International Business Review, 30(4): 1-12 (Link).
Abstract: While significant progress has been made on the contextual role of institutions, scholarly research on the dynamic process of emerging economy multinational enterprises’ (EMNEs) international activities interacting with home country and host country institutions still seems to be in its infancy. Therefore, in order to move the current academic debate forward, we examine the intersection between the internationalisation of EMNEs and their institutional environments by undertaking a critical review of the existing literature, given that institutional forces not only shape organisational behavior but also affect EMNEs’ internationalisation strategies and organisational outcomes. We propose an integrative framework of 5Cs (context, capability, change, concomitance and configuration) underlying the co-evolution of EMNEs’ internationalisation and institutions in order to point towards a number of directions for future scholarship.
Nielsen, B.B., Welch, C., Chidlow, A., Miller, S.R., Aguzzoli, R., Gardner, E., Karafyllia, M., & Pegoraro, D. (2020) Fifty years of methodological trends in JIBS: Why future IB research needs more triangulation? Journal of International Business Studies. 51(9):1478-1499 (Link).
Abstract: We analyse methodological trends in empirical research in JIBS from 1970 to 2019. Our results point to the prevalence of the following patterns: there has been an increase in the use of (1) large-scale longitudinal, cross-national datasets, (2) complex analytical techniques, including the incorporation of multiple analytical techniques within the same study, but (3) a decline in the diversity of methods in use. We relate these trends to the underlying social, technical, and communicative conventions in the journal during the 50-year period. The observed patterns are consistent with theory that posits scientific fields entrench a dominant paradigm over time, resulting in a restricted set of methodological options being selected. Such restrictions jeopardize the quality of research because the study of any phenomenon requires the use of multiple methodological procedures to avoid the systematic biases, errors, omissions, and limitations introduced by any single option. Therefore, we propose the use of triangulation as a strategy for building methodological alternatives into research designs. Institutionalization of this principle in the field of international business has the potential to enhance both the rigor and scope of future inquiry (Link).
Chidlow, A., Hadijkhani, A., Ghauri, P. (2019) Three Pillars: International Service Firms, Society and Political Units: Moving Towards a Theoretical Perspective, Management International Review. 59(4):499-514 (Link).
Abstract: Although there is extensive research in the field of services and lately on the internationalization of services, the topic of how service firms interact with society and political organizations, during their internationalization process, remains almost untouched. As an answer to the call for further research on the interaction between service firms, society and policy makers, this paper aims to advance the knowledge by proposing an integrative theoretical view. Dissimilar to the earlier research where each study stands on a specific theoretical discipline (economic, behavioural or political science), the proposed theoretical view asserts the need for an interdisciplinary approach. The integration of these three perspectives is vital since business, policy and society have different legitimacy and dependency grounds and yet their goals and objectives have been converging over the years. Isolating these disciplines from each other is, thus, not very helpful in advancing the knowledge and understanding the conditions, motives and consequences of multinational enterprises in foreign markets. Moreover, the internationalization of services and the extent of heterogeneity in service products/solutions, from banking to retailing and e-commerce, create new challenges that need for interaction between these parties; the three pillars of our society.
Romero-Martinez, A. M., García-Muiña, F. E. Chidlow, A., & Larimo, J. (2019) Formal and informal institutional differences between home and host country location choices: Evidence from the Spanish hotel industry. Management International Review, 59(1):41-65 (Link).
Abstract: Using secondary data of internationalised Spanish hotel chains, this research attempts to examine the role of formal and informal institutional differences between home and host country from the foreign location choice point of view. Generally speaking, the results show that (a) the higher the formal institutional differences the lower the attractiveness of the foreign location, (b) the negative effect of linguistic differences, as an informal institutional dimension, significantly affects the choice of location, and (c) the moderating role of linguistic differences between formal institutional factors with regards to the choice of location is contrary to our expectations. Based on the findings, this work wishes to offer not just a better understanding of the location choice decisions within the service industry but also to identify both the joint effect of formal and informal institutional factors as well as to distil their individual effects. This is of relevance since there seem to be no conclusive empirical evidence of such effects so far in the literature.

Abstract: Merger and Acquisitions have been on the rise since the last three decades and as such have attracted considerable attention from the research community. Conclusions drawn by the existing studies indicate that such transactions do not result in a better performance, they erode acquiring firm's shareholders value, and also produce highly volatile market returns. A number of studies have analysed reasons for such inefficiencies and pointed out to several factors behind them. However, to the best of our knowledge, very little attention has been given to the business evaluation process as an influencing factor. Therefore, by providing a holistic view, the aim of this work is to investigate how the components involved in the business evaluation process influence the outcome of Merger and Acquisitions. Overall, the findings reveal that strictly controlled and inter-linked components relating to the business evaluation process have a significant impact on the outcome of the cross-border transactions. Further, the results also point out that if the selection and assessment of target firms is improved, the Merger and Acquisition results will be better.

Abstract: The impact of location-specific factors on a multinational company's activities has long been investigated by international business scholars. However, studies have focused their attention on the pre-entry location decisions of foreign subsidiaries, rather than the post-entry decision of relocation or development in place. Building on the existing international business research that relates to initial strategies this work aims to fill in the current gap in the literature by offering a novel understanding of the importance of location-specific factors for the post-entry development of a multinational company's subsidiaries within the sub-national regional context. Using on-line survey data and a discrete-choice model of 91 foreign subsidiaries in Poland, the results show that knowledge-seeking factors are the main drivers for the post-entry subsidiary development in the Mazowieckie sub-national region, while efficiency-seeking factors drive location to in other sub-national regions of Poland. The findings also show that subsidiaries are indifferent to regional location the subsidiary's post-entry development if agglomerations and infrastructure factors are important to multinational companies.

Chidlow, A., Ghauri, P., Yeniyurt, S., & Cavusgil, S.T. (2015) Establishing Rigor in Mail Survey Procedures in International Business Research, Journal of World Business, 50(1): 26-36 (Link).
Abstract: How rigorous have our data-collection procedures been in international business research? We report the results of a comprehensive content analysis of scholarly work published in four leading international business journals over the past decade. The focus is data-collection procedures used by researchers in mail surveys. The intent is to be self-critical and formulate strategies for enhancing the rigor and success of data-collection procedures in survey-based research. Our findings confirm that international business scholars could significantly improve surveys’ response rates by following more rigorous and well-established methodological practices already established in the social science literature. We also find that, while some continents tend to be oversampled, a large portion of the world remains underrepresented in international business research. The results point to interesting trends in cross-cultural data-collection procedures. Given that primary research will always drive new knowledge creation, scholars are strongly advised to practice best-available procedures for data collection.
Chidlow, A., & Ghauri, P. (2015) What incentives are being used by international business researchers in their surveys: A review. The William Davidson Institute, The University of Michigan. Academic Working Paper Series, No 1086 (January) (Link).
Abstract: Following a number of studies on the factors that might affect response rates in cross-national research, this work examines the types of incentives mentioned by international business scholars in mail surveys as well as how the use of such incentives affects the response rate. This work uses a content analysis of articles published in four leading international business journals in the period of 2000 - 2009. The results show that out of 217 studies under examination only 42 mentioned any type of incentives for enhancing the response rate. The most common incentives used by authors are confidentiality and anonymity, followed by a business reply envelope and a free report. Generally speaking, the results demonstrate that studies reporting incentives achieve, on average, a lower response rate from those that do not report them.
Chidlow, A., Plakoyiannaki, E., & Welsh, C. (2014) Translation in Cross-Language International Business Research: Beyond Equivalence, Journal of International Business Studies, 45(5): 562-582 (Link).
Abstract: In this paper, we problematise the way translation has been treated in international business (IB) research. We start by conducting an interpretive content analysis of both qualitative and quantitative cross-language studies published in four core IB journals over the course of a decade. Our analysis shows the dominance of a technicist view of translation associated with the equivalence paradigm. In contrast, we advocate a shift to a more contextualised approach informed by theoretical developments in translation studies. More specifically, we focus on two theoretical perspectives – skopos theory and cultural politics – which offer related but distinct approaches to rethinking equivalence. We conclude by advocating that the translation process be reframed as a process of intercultural interaction, rather than a lexical transfer of meaning. This reconceptualisation would, we argue, open up what is currently a “black box” in most IB studies. The contextualised approach that we offer has the potential not just to enrich the findings of studies, but also provide insights that are of multidisciplinary relevance.
Park, B., Chidlow, A., & Choi, J. (2014) Corporate Social Responsibility: Stakeholder influence on MNEs activities. International Business Review, 23(5): 966-981 (Link).
Abstract: This research attempts to examine how specific stakeholder groups influence multinational enterprise (MNE) corporate social responsibility (CSR) practices in South Korea. Generally speaking, the results show that both primary (e.g., consumers, ‘internal managers and employees’ and business collaborators) and secondary stakeholders (e.g., governments, media, local community and NGOs) positively influence MNEs’ CSR. Contrary to previous research, this work also demonstrates that business collaborators have a negative and significant effect on MNEs’ CSR. Based on the findings this paper wishes to offer a framework for MNEs to thoroughly consider the impact of stakeholders when drawing a picture for their CSR strategy. Further, this work also hopes to contribute to current discussions in the area of CSR by bringing a new stream of research into the international business field. In addition, this work strives to provide useful and practical implications for MNEs wanting to operate in the South Korean market.
Jaklic, A., Cirjakovic., J., & Chidlow, A. (2012) Exploring the Effects of International Sourcing on Manufacturing versus Service Firms. The Service Industries Journal, 32(7): 1193-1207 (Link).
Abstract: As the extent of international sourcing rises and the number of functional activities spreading across-national borders increases, there is a call for a better understanding of its impact on structural change. In this work, we explore the effects of international sourcing comparatively and look for differences between manufacturing and service firms. This study is based on a unique Slovenian data set that links the recently conducted Eurostats survey on international sourcing with a detailed financial firm-level data. The results from the matching methodology suggest that service firms involved in international sourcing gain an improvement in the quality and technological learning, resulting in the employment growth and development. This is not the case for manufacturing firms driven primarily by cost cutting. In our view, a better understanding of these effects is vital for both manufacturing as well as service firms that are influenced by this new trend.

Abstract: The issue of location-specific factors of a multinational company’s activities has long been investigated by international business scholars. To our knowledge, however, all these studies have put attention on the pre-entry location decision of foreign subsidiaries, rather than the post-entry decision. As such, by incorporating a regional perspective into the study of a subsidiary’ development this work offers an understanding of the importance of location-specific factors for the post-entry development of a multinational company’s subsidiaries at the regional level. The empirical analysis, used in this work, utilises a discrete-choice model with primary data from an online survey of 91 foreign-owned subsidiaries in Poland. The results demonstrate that the Mazowieckie region is the most attractive location for post-entry subsidiary development if knowledge-seeking factors are important to MNCs. Further, the findings indicate that South-East and South-West regions are more favoured for post-entry subsidiary development when efficiency-seeking factors are important to multinational companies. The findings also show that none of the examined regions are significant for the post-entry subsidiary’s development if agglomerations factors and infrastructure are important to multinational companies.

Abstract: Following a number of earlier studies on data equivalence in cross-cultural international business research, this article uses a content analysis of articles published in four leading international business journals from 2000 to 2009, to uncover the equivalence in current state of data collection procedures used by researchers in mail surveys. The results show that, despite repeated calls and the existence of a well established theoretical framework for mail survey data collection by Don Dillman (1978, 1999), international business scholars have not been inspired to adopt and report the data collection procedures adequately in their work. We hope this work will draw due attention to the aspect in international business research.

Abstract: In this paper we examine the location determinants of the inflow of foreign direct investment (FDI) into Poland, at a regional level. Using survey data from an on-line questionnaire in February 2005 and a multinomial logit model incorporating the investor's specific characteristics, we show that knowledge-seeking factors alongside market and agglomeration factors, act as the main drivers for the inflow of FDI to the Mazowieckie region (including Warsaw), while efficiency and geographical factors encourage FDI to the other areas of Poland. Some implications are drawn for FDI attraction policy in Poland.

Abstract: This study investigates how Multinational Enterprise (MNE) factors and host country factors have an impact on backward relationship linkage formation and how the linkages between the foreign subsidiary and local firms generate benefits to the local socio-economic environment. A model is developed from the literature and refined using case studies based on in-depth interviews with top managers of service companies| foreign subsidiaries operating in Poland. The findings suggest that four factors affect the formation of relationship linkages: the MNE|s mode of entry, the subsidiary’s autonomy, government policy (consisting of the development of infrastructure and skills needed by MNEs and protection of data and intellectual property rights), and government incentives (including incentives for both long-term projects and the search for and identification of newer technology). Benefits to the local socio-economic environment deriving from linkages include local jobs, absorption of knowledge and uplifting of the firms| self-image. The study concludes with implications for policy makers.
