Uppsala Seminar of International Business (USIB) is the regular research seminars held by International Business group in the Department of Business Studies, Uppsala University.

This Friday, we will have our sixteenth ‘Research Conversations’ (earlier 'in-between-USIB meeting).

We are very pleased to welcome Alice Schmuck, who together with Pao Kao will start off our conversation about writing literature review articles.

Two articles are attached as readings on the topic. One article is highly IB relevant, and addresses how to carry out a literature review study while actually carrying one out on IB research. The other article is very hands-on, identifying the main components of a literature review article, examples of visual illustrations, and how to write literature review articles that are integrative and provocative with the aim to contribute to the extant literature.

Readings:
Gaur, A., & Kumar, M. (2018). A systematic approach to conducting review studies: An assessment of content analysis in 25 years of IB research. Journal of World Business, 53(2), 280-289.

Torraco, R. J. (2016). Writing integrative literature reviews: Using the past and present to explore the future. Human Resource Development Review, 15(4), 404-428.

Time schedule:
10.00-10.15 - we start by having coffee together (bring your own).
10.15-11.15 - we talk about ‘Writing research review articles’
11.15-12.00 - time allocated to those who wish to continue the discussion

The overall purpose of the ‘Research conversation’ is for the IB-group and others interested to meet for one hour (or two) over a cup of coffee and talk about issues relevant to us, while leaving the regular USIB for paper presentation and discussion. The idea is to share experience and exchange insights and all are welcome to contribute and discuss.

See you on Friday,

All the best,
Lena, Ulf, Alice and Pao
