A new study led by a Stanford University professor reveals that a number of the faculty members at York University’s Schulich School of Business are among the top two per cent most cited researchers in their field and/or subfield in the world.

The study, titled “Updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators” and published in PLOS Biology, showed that 12 Schulich professors were among the top two per cent in 2019.

The Schulich faculty members included in the top two per cent in 2019 include: Russell Belk, Ron Burke (deceased), Wade Cook, Charles Cho, Eileen Fischer, Matthias Kipping, Dirk Matten, Dean Neu, Christine Oliver, Robert Phillips, Perry Sadorsky and Gregory Saxton.

In addition, nine Schulich professors were among the world’s top two per cent most cited researchers in their field and/or subfield over the course of their entire career. These Schulich faculty members include: Russell Belk, Ron Burke (deceased), John Buzacott (emeritus), Wade Cook, Matthias Kipping, Dirk Matten, Dean Neu, Christine Oliver and Perry Sadorsky.

Schulich faculty members were also ranked highly in various categories among all researchers in Canada. Cho, professor of accounting and the Erivan K. Haub Chair in Business & Sustainability, was the most-cited academic in Canada in the Accounting subfield for 2019; Neu, professor of accounting, was the most-cited academic in Canada in the Accounting subfield in the career category; and Belk, professor of marketing and the Kraft Foods Canada Chair in Marketing, was the most-cited academic in Canada in the Marketing subfield for both the 2019 and career categories.
