More Information
This essential Research Handbook examines the state-of-the-art methodologies being applied to the expanding field of intellectual capital (IC) research. It offers an overview of the contemporary issues and methods in the field, providing insight and inspiration for emerging and established academics in their own research.

Featuring contributions from a variety of renowned international scholars in the area, the Research Handbook is divided into four parts, outlining the four main methodological routes taken by current IC research. First, chapters discuss content analysis and offer future perspectives for advancing such studies. The book then examines fruitful avenues for IC visualization studies, before critiquing and furthering IC value added and IC efficiency measurement studies. Finally, it analyses and offers novel approaches for studying and intervening with IC and value creation.

This Research Handbook will be a vital resource for scholars and students of business and management entering the field of intellectual capital, whether they are established academics with a renewed interest in the subject or just starting their research careers.
Critical Acclaim
‘This is an invaluable resource for both new and seasoned scholars interested in the field of intellectual capital (IC). The impressive range of topics arranged under the four themes – content analysis, visual methodologies, Value Added Intellectual Capital (VAIC) and novel approaches – does not only highlight some of the critical issues in measuring IC but also offer some fresh approach that can be adopted when researching IC.’
– Roszaini Haniffa, Heriot-Watt University, UK
