Studies with more diverse teams of authors get more citations

Diverse research is more impactful in the business management field, with female influence growing stronger in the past decade, finds a new study from the University of Surrey.  

The study analysed all articles published in the last 10 years (January 2012 to December 2022) in the influential Journal of Management Studies.  

The empirical analysis examined three key aspects of teams’ diversity:  

  • Internationality (how international is mix of authors),  
  • Interdisciplinarity (how many different fields of study they come from),  
  • Gender (the balance of males and females). 

The study has been published in the Journal of Management Studies

Note to editors
