Eastham, Rodney A. & Skitmore, Martin (1993) Construction contractor's project selection: decision making within a portfolio framework. In International Seminar on Optimum Systems for Construction Management (ISOSCM '93),, 15-17 July 1993, Management Modernisation Research Institute, CCIA, Harbin, Heilongjiang, China.

A method is proposed by which objective decisions may be made considering the risks involved. An illustration is provided with 'live' bidding data.

Citation counts are 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.
