BATON ROUGE - Journal of Management accepted a paper written by Thomas Greckhamer, professor in the Rucks Department of Management in LSU’s E. J. Ourso College of Business, and Furkan Gur, an assistant professor at Northern Illinois University who graduated with a PhD in management from the E. J. Ourso College of Business in 2016.

As a fundamental phenomenon of competitive strategy, competitor identification has attracted scholarly attention from management, industrial organization (IO) economics and marketing disciplines. In “‘Know Thy Enemy’: A Review and Agenda for Research on Competitor Identification,” Gur and Greckhamer review the theoretical perspectives, research questions, key concepts, findings and underlying epistemological and methodological choices adopted in the literature on competitor identification across multiple disciplines. Building on their review, they propose an agenda that addresses both unresolved debates and identifies new promising directions for future research.

Peer-reviewed and published bi-monthly, Journal of Management is committed to publishing scholarly empirical and theoretical research articles that impact the management field as a whole. The publication is one of 50 journals used by the Financial Times in compiling the FT Business School Research rankings and is classified as a “world-elite” journal by the Association of Business Schools.
