Born Global Firms WoS dataset
In this study, the authors searched for all articles with the words “born-global”, “born global”, “born globals”, “international new venture”, “international new ventures”, “rapid internationalization”, “new global business”, “new global businesses”, “fast internationalizers”, “early internationalizers” as the query to search the following fields within a record: Title, Abstract, Author Keywords, and Keywords Plus®. Because of the nature of collecting papers by the query, the corpus included papers that are not relevant to our strict criteria. Accordingly, it was necessary to analyze Title, Abstract and Keywords fields of retrieved documents, respectively. In consequence, the collection of 453 papers published between 1994 and 2016 was obtained. This set was then fixed as the basis for all future analysis.
