Studies on financing sources of enterprises activities - publication selection bias. A meta-regression analysis
Languages of publication
This article discusses the verification of the effect of publication in the studies regarding the sources of financing business operations. There is a probability that the results presented in literature may be encumbered by the problem of statistical significance selection. The works which show a weaker correlation or the lack of significance are less attractive and are seldom published – they are viewed as not providing enough contribution to science and not explaining the studied phenomena. In the publications regarding bank loans, the publication selection bias was found in the case of the structure of the assets and size of the company. In the case of the trade credit, the publication selection bias was pointed out in the case of indebtedness, profitability, size of the company, development potential and stock. In the studies of lease, the publication selection bias was confirmed in the case of indebtedness, profitability and size of the company.
