Information on Publications Provided by Business Administration Professors on Their Websites

We analyse whether and how business administration professors in German-speaking countries present their publications on a websites provided by their university or college. We use the database of Google Scholar in order to estimate the percentage of publications of the last five years (2009 to 2013) that are not listed on the websites. Our results indicate that a website informing about a professor’s publications is rather lacking for retired and college professors and for professors with a lower research performance in the last five years. They also suggest that a remarkable percentage of publications are not listed on the existing websites. This is also true for articles published in professional journals. Calculations of binary logistic regressions show that older professors and professors with a higher research performance in the last five years are less likely to inform about all publications of the last five on their websites.
