MALAVER RODRIGUEZ, Florentino. Colombian research in administration takes off: an analysis of the progress made from 2000 to 2006. Cuad. Adm. [online]. 2006, vol.19, n.32, pp. 71-109. ISSN 0120-3592.
This paper looks into the degree of progress made in administration research in Colombia in the past ten years, and more specifically from 2000 to 2006. The progress is evaluated using notions from both institutional and resource perspectives, the research groups analytical capabilities, and indexed administration journals. To establish the development of the research groups, the indicators used were track record and production quantity and quality. For the journals, the indicators were indexing level and ambit. Information was gathered from four databases: the research group database GrupLAC, the national indexed journal database and the database of international journals homologated in the Colombian Publindex, and the Journal Citation Index. Study results for the period under study show that, on one hand, research increased as did the research groups products in both quantity and quality and the incipience of internationalization was seen. On the other hand, there was but a reduced nucleus of groups who took important steps towards consolidation and there are still few top-quality indexed journals in Colombia.
