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.
