The Handbook of Measures for International Entrepreneurship Research is a user-friendly collection of multi-item measures developed and used in the research of international entrepreneurship and important areas related to it: international business, entrepreneurship, marketing, strategy, and innovation. Editors Nicole Coviello and Helena Yli-Renko carefully compiled 212 self-report scales from over 820 possible measures using rigorous selection criteria. The scales fall into eight distinct categories:* Individual-level influences* Firm and team-level influences* External environmental influences* Relationships, networks, and social capital* Organizational learning* Capabilities* Orientation and strategy* Performance and innovation outcomesEach scale includes the following features to enable ease of use: summary, construct definition, description, source, development or adaptation procedures, sample, validity, scores, references, and scale items.This standout Handbook not only builds a compelling case for a more rigorous approach to research methods in international entrepreneurship research, but also explores the best practices in development, adaptation, use, and reporting of multi-item measures. Academic researchers in international entrepreneurship, international business, entrepreneurship, marketing, strategy, and/or innovation will find this reference tool a welcome addition to their survey research practices. Policy-makers conducting research in these areas will also appreciate this book.
'Developing valid and reliable measures is a minefield for most doctoral students and even experienced and accomplished scholars. The top-tier publication graveyard is littered with the ghosts of manuscripts and their authors tripped by poor construct measures. Coviello and Yli-Renko provide a 'toolkit' of conceptually and empirically validated measures, their sources and from across a spectrum of disciplines and contexts to help you clear the minefield. You should thank them.'- Kwaku Atuahene-Gima, Nobel International Business School, Ghana
