“At FFI, scholarly research and generated knowledge is publically disseminated through rigorous peer-reviewed research articles published in Family Business Review (1988), and usable findings published in the FFI Practitioner including
the FBR Précis. Interest in family business research is now global and multi-disciplinary, but this was not always the case.

“FFI can take a lot of credit for the phenomenal growth of scholarly attention to family firms,” says FBR editor Prof. Pramodita Sharma. “From a meagre thirteen to thirty scholarly or peer-reviewed articles a year in the seventies and eighties respectively, the establishment of FBR and FFI triggered an increase to approximately 230 articles a year in the nineties. An escalation of interest in this field of study continues today, with over 800 research articles generated annually.”

FBR continues to publish about twenty articles a year. In the last five years, more than 1,865 unique scholars based in 72 countries submitted their research for publication in FBR, a journal present in more than 9,500 organisations from 187
countries.”
