JIBS FEATURED ARTICLE How do domestic firm social structures impact their ability to absorb technology spillovers from foreign multinational firms? To further explore this question, the editors of the Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS) are featuring "Social structure and technology spillovers from foreign to domestic firms" by Alex Eapen (University of Sydney Business School, Sydney, Australia) as a recent example of the journalís commitment to publishing groundbreaking scholarship.† This article is available free-to-view online until July 31, 2012. In his article, Eapen integrates insights from social networks, technology upgrading and innovation literatures to emphasize that a domestic firm's ability to absorb spillovers depends on the social structure it is embedded in Ė an issue largely overlooked by scholars when conceptualizing absorptive capacity.
