We introduce this Journal of World Business special issue on methodological advances in international business (IB) research. Due to technological advances and the availability of bigger, deeper, and multi-level data, there is a need to reconsider, refashion, and reconceptualize IB research methodology. To do so, we discuss ethnography, multilevel modeling, textual analysis and multimodal data, visual methods, machine learning, accommodating multiplicity in qualitative research, and crowdsourcing. The future is bright for the field of IB because there are almost unlimited contributions that it can make to organizations and societies. But, to continue to do so, we must adapt and rethink our “research business model:” The way we think, conduct research, and report results to make meaningful contributions and impact both IB theory and practice.
