Lepori, Benedetto ; Wise, Michael ; Ingenhoff, Diana ; Buhmann, Alexander

In: Scientometrics, 2016, vol. 109, no. 3, p. 2279–2301

This paper presents an analysis of resource acquisition and profile development of institutional units within universities. We conceptualize resource acquisition as a two level nested process, where units compete for external resources based on their credibility, but at the same time are granted faculty positions from the larger units (department) to which they belong. Our model implies that the...

Buhmann, Alexander ; Ingenhoff, Diana ; Lepori, Benedetto

In: Communications, 2015, vol. 40, no. 3, p. 267-293

In this study we empirically map the field of media and communication studies (MCS) by focusing on relationships between cognitive dimensions (such as research topics and approaches) on the one hand and material dimensions (such as funding and institutionalization) on the other. Our analysis, which focuses on the field of MCS in Switzerland, identifies two clusters of research institutions...

Purpose – Despite an impressive body of international research, there is a lack of empirical evidence describing the ways in which organisational environments influence the practices of corporate communications (CC). A cross-cultural survey in five countries contributes to closing this research gap. The paper aims to discuss this issue. Design/methodology/approach – What makes the research...

The paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach – The study applies a combined perspective of uses-andgratifications (U&G) and social cognitive theory...

Helmig, Bernd ; Spraul, Katharina ; Ingenhoff, Diana

In: Business & society, 2016, vol. 55, no. 2, p. 151-187

This study tests a model that links stakeholder pressure to the implementation of corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities and market performance. Stakeholder groups and competitors might exert pressure on companies to implement CSR, which could lead to positive effects on market performance. Using structural equation modeling (SEM), the authors find that stakeholders and competitors...
