Congratulations to Catherine Welch and co-authors for receiving the JIBS Decade Award! The paper entitled “Theorising from case studies: Towards a pluralist future for international business research”investigates methods of theorising from case studies. The focus is on understanding how case researchers theorise and how this can be translated for IB research. Based on a content analysis of case studies from three top journals, the authors construct a typology of theorising from case studies and distinguish four methods of theorising – inductive theory-building, interpretive sensemaking, natural experiment and contextualised explanation. The authors further encourage the researchers to go beyond inductive theory-building and adopt the other methods of theorising to enhance the case study’s explanatory power and potential for contextualisation.
