The establishment of the London and Manchester Business Schools following the Franks Report in 1963 and the formation of the Social Sciences Research Council (SSRC) at the same time, as well as increases in the number of universities following the Robbins Report, combined to increase the funds available for social science research in business and management (Franks 1963; HMSO 1963; Caswill and Wensley 2007).
