Given the fact that FBR is only in its 31st year of publication, the field of family business research is relatively young compared with other disciplines within business. However, interest in family business research is growing at a phenomenal rate as, on average, almost 900 research articles on family business have been published every year since 2010 (which greatly exceeds the 30 and 230 articles written on average, per year, in the 1980’s and 1990’s, respectively). The variety of special issues in journals from disciplines outside of family business is further evidence of the widespread interest of other business scholars in family business phenomena. In fact, our discipline has had a long history of reaching out to scholars in disparate fields, as witnessed by special issues early in FBR’s existence on philanthropy in family foundations (1990), women in family businesses (1990), and international business (1991).
