MIN Qing-fei,GUO Shu-shan,XIE Bo(School of management,Dalian University of Technology,Dalian 116024,China)  
By reviewing and classifying papers on virtual teams published in leading Chinese journals during 2000—2008,we analyze the current situation of virtual team studies from four perspectives,namely,research topics,research methods,reference disciplines,and application fields.The analysis results are also compared with foreign virtual team studies.This paper finds that our research on virtual teams primarily regard to management,sociology and psychology as their theoretical foundation.Most studies concern on what virtual team is,how to manage it effectively and how to extend it into other fields.Although the number of researches based on the I-P-O model have increased these years,many promising topics are undiscussed.In terms of methodology,empirical methods are rarely used.The application domain concentrates in the RD organizations,with a few studies in other fields,such as virtual enterprises and virtual software development teams,etc.Thus,we can see that we have our own characteristics on the research topics,methods as well as the application fields in China.Much more efforts are needed for further improvement in this field.
