  Abstract:  VIEW PDF: INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS RESEARCH IN POLAND: CRITICAL REVIEW OF SELECTED PUBLICATIONS

The principal aim of this review article is to provide an account on the structure, topical and methodical diversity of international business research in Poland in the period 1990-2014. To fulfil this objective, a structured literature review combining qualitative and quantitative elements was carried out. Specifically, qualitative content analysis enabled identifying specific research questions within pre-defined research areas of international business. The review allows assessing the relative importance of specific research streams within international business research in Poland, also highlighting their evolution. It turns out that macro- and micro-level internationalisation, followed by international firm competitiveness and international entrepreneurship have consistently dominated among research areas, while their relative share has changed during the analysed period. Quantitative methods, with a clear focus on descriptive statistics, have prevailed in extant research. Apart from a suggested enhanced focus of performance and competitiveness implications of international business activities, interrelationships between macro-, meso- and micro-level variables should be explored to a larger extent. It is arguably the first comprehensive, structured review of Polish contributions to international business scholarship, showing its current state and underrepresented topics in current research.
