Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


On September 27, 2018, Professor James G. March, a giant in our field, passed away at the age of 90 (1928-2018), just one month after his wife and high school sweetheart, Jayne, passed away. Marchs impact on the field of organization studies and beyond is profound and long-lasting. The advancement of the field is truly indebted to Marchs brilliance and dedication to the search of truth as a great scholar. March wrote the inaugural article for Management and Organization Review (MOR) (2005), Parochialism in the Evolution of a Research Community: The Case of Organization Studies. This article not only provided a critical foundation underlying the editorial structure and philosophy of MOR but also argued eloquently for the salience of indigenous Chinese management studies as a necessary condition for building both contextualized and universal knowledge.
