Thomson Reuters has named Family Business Review (FBR) a Rising Star in the field of Economics & Business.

In an interview with Thomson’s ScienceWatch, Editor Pramodita Sharma discussed the “rigor, relevance, and reach” that have led to FBR‘s growing influence as a journal that focuses on “issues important to the most prevalent form of organization in the world and over time”:

Since its founding 26 years ago, [the Family Firm Institute] has been steadfast in its support for rigorous research on family enterprises through FBR, along with unpublished-paper and dissertation awards and, more recently, “Best Paper Published in FBR” and best-reviewer awards.

Practitioner support for FBR and family enterprise research is notable, too. One recent example is the Joe Goodman study through FFI, results of which appeared in a “conversation-changing” piece in the June 2012 issue.

The annual FFI conferences bring together scholars, advisors and some family enterprise operators. This helps in building the relevance of research undertaken and supports its reach as well.

Nason of Babson College, and Mattias Nordqvist of Jönköping International Business School.
