His co-authored JIBS paper (Cui and Jiang, 2012; doi.org/10.1057/jibs.2012.1) entitled “State ownership effect on firms’ FDI ownership decisions under institutional pressure: A study of Chinese outward-investing firms” was the most cited paper adjusted by the year of publication as reported by a recent study published in JIBS (Sun, et al., 2021; doi.org/10.1057/s41267-021-00438-x). His most recent JIBS paper (Jiang, et al., 2022; https://rdcu.be/cI9Fs) that proposed a “Three-Dimensional Attachment” framework explaining reverse knowledge transfer to parent firms is an important advancement to the international joint venture and knowledge transfer literature.
