His papers and books on these fields are widely cited, reflecting his broad influence across the field of organisational behaviour. Professor Ashkanasy's expertise has also been recognised through his appointment as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Organisational Behaviour and Associate Editor of the Academy of Management Review.
