  • One of the papers that Gartner co-authored for the Journal of Small Business Management was listed as one of its top 10 most-read papers for 2021.

Also, Neck and Andrew Corbett co-authored the top-cited paper—”The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Entrepreneurship”—in Entrepreneurship Education and Pedagogy, the only entrepreneurship journal focused on pedagogy.
