This paper contributes to the international business lit-erature by exploring the degree of globalization in our international business journals. Through an investigation of all multi-authored articles in core international business journals over a five-year period, we test the nature of international business authorship by following Rugman's insights on the regional nature of the MNE. Our findings suggest that within the Triad regions of North America and Western Europe, and similar to MNE patterns and international commerce, international business research is not global. In contrast, within the Triad region of Developed Asia, we find that international business research is global.
