The research presented in this research note relates to two partly overlapping topics in previous research on SMEs. Firstly, it extends earlier findings regarding the role of SMEs in job creation. Secondly, it illustrates in a quite dramatic fashion the importance of definitions and operationalisations in research on small business growth, something which has been suggested in earlier reviews of that line of research.

Impact and interest:

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
