We seek to explain why some entrepreneurship articles get more cites. We replicate the Judge et al (2007) research model to investigate whether the same key factors drive the development of citations within the entrepreneurship field. In the process, we also test out a new metric for readability. As is perhaps widely assumed, it may be that the “subfield” of entrepreneurship studies will follow the same patterns revealed in the broader field of management. Certainly scholars within the field of entrepreneurship have observed distinctions between entrepreneurship and general management studies. This fact suggests that there may be differences, but it remains to be empirically tested. In this study we test this assumption.
