A book chapter co-authored by an International Business and Management expert from Cardiff University has featured in a selection of the latest high-impact publications by Chinese researchers.

The list, compiled by Springer Nature, brings together thirty of the most highly cited research papers and downloaded book chapters in Business and Management, Economics, Politics and Law until December 2020, based on the publisher’s insights.

Dr Yue Xu, a lecturer in Cardiff Business School’s Marketing and Strategy Section, co-authored the chapter ‘Independent or Interdependent Innovation: The Case of Huawei’ for an edited collection on the Chinese multinational technology company entitled Huawei Goes Global.

Composed together with Assistant Professor Xingkun Liang, from Peking University’s Department of Information Management, the chapter focuses on Huawei’s innovation process and provides insights into how latecomer firms can deliberately manage interdependence and independence in the catch-up process.

The list is part of a curated collection of the most recent influential publications by Chinese researchers from across BMC, Nature Portfolio, Palgrave Macmillan and Springer including 300+ high impact journal.

“I’m so happy that Springer Nature have spotlighted our research in this special collection. In the chapter, myself and Xingkun explored the meaning of independent innovation, a popular concept widely adopted in China’s business world. It was a fascinating opportunity to explore the true meaning of the term. And to see the impact generated and appreciated in this way is humbling.”

The collection was launched as part of the Chinese Spring Festival marking the 2021 New Year of the Ox.

Niels Peter Thomas, Managing Director Springer Nature (Books), said: “On the occasion of the Spring Festival the entire Springer Nature Books team wishes the Chinese research community a happy and successful year of the Ox.”
