Paper on Consumers’ Values for Buying Organic Personal Care Products published

However, I have since then realised that many of the most cited academic papers are actually conceptual papers as opposed to the empirical research papers. Just take a look at some of the ground breaking Harvard Business Review papers.

My second most cited paper is a book chapter which I co-authored during my PhD days with my supervisor Professor Qing Wang. The chapter titled "Consumer generated advertising in blogs" in the book  'Handbook of Research…
