    Abstract

    Recent research indicates that small firms are a key source of growth, employment and innovation in modern economies. The competitiveness of small enterprises is explained in terms of the orientation of contemporary economies towards rapidly changing consumer markets and niche markets in combination with an increased role for information and knowledge in both new and existing industries. In this environment, small flexible enterprises are regarded as having an advantage over large bureaucratic organizations.

    Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

    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.
