Goss and ensuing research in shipping and port
by Young-Tae Chang; Paul Tae-Woo Lee
International Journal of Shipping and Transport Logistics (IJSTL), Vol. 11, No. 5, 2019

Abstract: The late Professor Richard Goss published 25 journal papers and edited two books and three monographs during his academic life of three decades. This paper revisits his work and examines whether ensuing research in shipping and port areas have been aligned with his academic thought and ideology. To this end, we first review his work to identify key concepts, theories and methodologies underlying his academic reasoning. Moreover, we utilise Chang et al.'s (2018) research outcomes to examine whether his theoretical propositions are still valid today in terms of both theory and empirical findings. We discuss whether there is a foregone conclusion on Goss' major themes and propositions or requires further empirical testing, and whether there exists the possibility to develop new theories and hypotheses. Based on our findings, we suggest future research directions in the shipping and port sectors.
