Morgan Swink Named No. 19 Top Innovation Management Scholar in the World

In an article in the Journal of Product Innovation Management (JPIM), Morgan Swink is ranked No. 19 out of 1,718 innovation management scholars for total number of articles published in 10 leading journals for the past 20 years, and No. 13 for articles he coauthored. Swink is professor of supply chain management and executive director of the Supply and Value Chain Center at the Neeley School of Business at TCU.

The Neeley School of Business at TCU ranked No. 46 for total number of innovation management articles by current faculty, and No. 38 for articles coauthored by current faculty, out of 625 universities around the world.

Articles published in top academic journals are one of the most important measures for high-quality intellectual research. Research productivity ranking of individual scholars is useful for identifying top scholars in the field, while a ranking of universities provides important information for prospective faculty recruits, doctoral students, companies seeking consulting help, potential donors and other stakeholders, according to the article. Research in innovation, described as “the overall process whereby an invention is transformed into a commercial product that can be sold profitably,” yields critical economic insights.

In constructing the ranking, authors Pianpian Yang and Lei Tao of Xi’an Jiaotong University considered articles published during the past 20 years in two leading innovation management journals, Journal of Product Innovation Management and IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management, as well as eight top management and marketing journals, Strategic Management Journal, Management Science, Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Operations Management, Journal of Marketing and Journal of Marketing Research.

Looking at the latter eight journals, Swink is ranked No. 13 in the world for total number of articles and No. 7 in the world for coauthored articles.  

The authors identified the most popular research topics in the field of innovation management from a comprehensive database of 1,229 articles between 1991 and 2010, classified into 29 categories, with the1,718 experts identified in each subfield.
