Abstract

In summary, past research on LOF, although limited in scope and directness of investigation, has laid the groundwork for advancing our understanding of this underdeveloped, yet important, issue. Present research has more directly investigated the "black box" of liabilities of foreignness and has expanded theoretical approaches used for this investigation. This special issue was designed to further broaden the scope and level of analysis of LOF research. This introduction emphasizes theoretical flows in past, present, and future research on LOF. It reviews major theories that underpin past and present studies on this issue and suggests several additional theories that future researchers may utilize to increase our understanding of LOF.
