Waikato Management School will host a research seminar on the topic of ‘Publishing systematic reviews in top journals’ on Friday, 13 September, starting at 11am. All staff and students are welcome.

The guest speaker is Dr Eldrede Kahiya, a senior lecturer in international business and programme director for the Master of Global Management/Marketing at Victoria University of Wellington. Prior to joining academia, he worked in imports/exports operations and retail management.

The rapid expansion of academic literature and the rise of evidence-based management have magnified the importance of systematic reviews.

Systematic reviews organise, analyse and synthesise past research with a view to creating taxonomy, integrating findings, or developing frameworks and propositions.

While all researchers conduct literature reviews to inform their models, research questions, and hypotheses, the systematic approach (planning, searching, mapping, analysis, and synthesis) differs in its method and focus.

This seminar will discuss the cornerstones of systematic reviews (i.e. systematicity, rigour, and audit trail) against the backdrop of two recently published systematic reviews and two work-in-process papers.

The papers cover export barriers, entrepreneurial internationalisation from a small open economy, capabilities of early-rapidly internationalising firms, and informal cross border trade (as a substratum marketing system).

Speaker bio:
