DEI Research

The DEI Research is our digital "journal of journals." It aggregates & curates the best research across the industry, publishing proprietary summaries & analyses of peer-reviewed business, technology, and social science research from the world's leading research centers.

What is the DEI Research?

 The origin of the DEI Research project is a years-long search for an easy way to stay current with the best academic business research. Rather than spend hours looking through business school websites, we wanted one site where we could read translations of great research with real-world business relevance. Unable to find such a resource, we decided to create it.

Our Goal

Put simply, the goal of the DEI Research is to bring you new and innovative academic business research (almost all peer-reviewed) relevant to senior business leaders in a format that is easy to understand.

Our Methodology

Our original sources are primarily the research libraries of the world’s premier business schools and high-impact-factor research journals and publications. Though most research comes from scholars in the U.S. and Europe, you will also find research from Australia, China, the Middle East, Singapore, etc. In short, DEI Research casts a wide net. Quality and relevance — not school brand — are the primary drivers of selection.

After selecting a relevant research paper, we summarize and contextualize it, complementing it, where appropriate, with our own perspectives and external references, i.e., it is “translated” for a business audience from the original academic format which is typically not practitioner-friendly.

To ensure quality, we always share our translations with the paper’s authors to ensure the accuracy of our analysis and translation. For selected posts, we record brief conversations with authors to provide you with direct insights about their research and findings. These recordings can be found at the bottom of the post.


If you are a scholar or researcher and want us to feature your work in DEI Research, please feel free to reach out to us at We are happy to review your research and, if requested, to provide feedback from a practitioner’s perspective.
