JOURNAL QUALITY LIST
Thirty-sixth Edition, 6 February 2010
Compiled and edited by Dr. Anne-Wil Harzing, http://www.harzing.com

Introduction
The Journal Quality List is published primarily to assist academics to target papers at journals
of an appropriate standard. We would be concerned if the list were used for staff evaluation
purposes in a mechanistic way. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of
the Journal Quality List, we recommend that it be checked before used extensively for evalua-
tion purposes. The editor will not be held responsible for omissions or errors.

Acknowledgements
The first version of the JQL was collated when the editor was with the University of Bradford
School of Management (UBSM). The editor gratefully acknowledges the assistance and con-
tributions of the following people: Kathy Cousens (UBSM) for the initial data entry work, Victo-
ria Lim, Ulrike Magner, Sebastian Reiche and Dinuka Wijetunga (all University of Melbourne)

DISCUSSION OF THE RANKINGS
NL99 — NL 1999
List based on a survey of opinions of academics in Business Administration in the Netherlands
(Professors, Directors of Research Schools & Editorial Board members of Maandblad voor Ac-
countancy & Bedrijfseconomie, Bedrijfskunde, International Journal of Research in Marketing
and Journal of Empirical Finance). Please note that this list has a relatively narrow disciplinary
focus.

Rank Interpretation
A Top academic journals
A (P) Top professional journals
B Very good academic journals
B (P) Very good professional journals
C Good academic journals
C (P) Good professional journals

SMJ99 — Strategic Management Journal 1999


Published as Tahai & Meyer (1999), Strategic Management Journal, vol. 20, pp. 279-296. The
list attempts to determine which management journals have the greatest influence on the field
of management. Uses a dataset of 1275 articles published in 17 source journals (the top 17
management journals in the SSCI) over a 2-year period. Journals that are cited most fre-
quently are those that have had the most influence on the current literature (i.e., revealed pref-
erence). Journals are ranked by citation frequency (1= most cited, 65 = least cited).

Rank Interpretation
1 Most cited journal
2-64 Other cited journals, by decreasing citation frequency
65 Least cited journal

WIE01 — WU Wien Journal Rating 2001


List developed by the Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien (Vienna University of Economics and Busi-
ness Administration). For more information and the complete list see: http://bach.wu-
wien.ac.at/bachapp/cgi-bin/fides/fides.aspx/fides.aspx?journal=true;lang=DE.
[Editor’s note] The WU Wien list contains over 1700 entries, but only entries in the research
areas covered by the current JQL have been included.

Rank Interpretation
A+ Top journals with world-wide distribution and readership; covering the entire scope of
a discipline; contributions are scientifically and methodologically most fastidious and
innovative; very frequently pioneer work and milestones of the respective discipline;
incomprehensible for non-scientists or readers without in-depth method knowledge;
toughest competition of authors from all over the world (very high refusal rate of
manuscripts); refereed in a double blind procedure (at least two referees).
A World-wide distributed journals; emphasis in just one linguistic area as the exception;
covering an entire discipline or an established subdiscipline; contributions are scien-
tifically and methodologically most fastidious and innovative; frequently pioneer work
and milestones of the respective discipline; understandable for graduates of relevant
studies; strong competition of authors from an international realm; refereed in a dou-
ble blind procedure (at least two referees).
B Journals with at least supraregional distribution in any language; covering at least an
established subdiscipline; contributions are scientifically or methodologically innova-
tive; understandable for practitioners without any degree in relevant studies; manu-

3
script submissions from a supraregional realm; refereed in a double blind procedure
(at least two referees).
C At least national distribution; covering at least established subdiscipline; the editors
pay attention to legibility for non-scientist, although research results have editorial
priority; practitioners rank among the core target group; at least national contribu-
tions; not necessarily anonymously refereed; however one external referee at least.
D At least national distribution; specialized on any level; contributions contain results in
simplified form; practitioners appear frequently as authors; contributions are aimed at
teaching or vocational training of practitioners; at least national contributions; no for-
mal reviewing procedures.

VHB03 — Assoc. of Professors of Business in German speaking countries


A ranking developed on behalf of the Association of University Professors of Business in Ger-
man speaking countries (Verband der Hochschullehrer für Betriebswirtschaft - VHB). Based on
a highly interactive and individualised survey distributed via the Internet, 651 professors and
university researchers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland assessed the scientific quality of
both articles and review processes of journals they were familiar with.
The Ranking with over 1,500 journals covers all fields of business administration (e.g., man-
agement, marketing, finance, accounting) and related areas (e.g., economics, psychology, po-
litical science). The evaluation scale ranged from 1 (very low) to 10 (very high). The results
were adjusted according to the different experience levels of the respondents.
[Editor’s note] In order to keep the JQL to a manageable length, lower-ranked journals (ranking
D&E) of the VHB list were only added if they already featured in the JQL. The same principle
was applied to German-language journals. The list also included a range of engineering and
computer science journals that were not included in the JQL as they were seen as less rele-
vant to Management/Business/Economics.
Journals that were ranked by less than 10 (but more than 5) respondents, were only included if
they (a) already featured in the JQL or (b) had a score of A or A+. These journals are indicated
with a letter score in brackets, e.g. (A). Five journals that were right on the borderline between
scores (e.g. with a score of 7.998) were assigned the higher level score.

Rank Interpretation
A+ VHB-JourQual Index ≥ 9
A VHB-JourQual Index ≥ 8
B VHB-JourQual Index ≥ 7
C VHB-JourQual Index ≥ 6
D VHB-JourQual Index ≥ 5
E VHB-JourQual Index < 5

BJM04 — British Jnl of Management 2001 Business & Mgmt RAE rankings
Published as Geary, J.; Marriott, L.; Rowlinson, M. (2004) Journal Rankings in Business and
Management and the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise in the UK, British Journal of Man-
agement, vol. 15, pp. 95-141.
This list is based on the premise that academic staff in institutions with a higher RAE rating will
tend to publish in higher-quality journals. Journals are therefore rated based on the frequency
with which they are included in each of the seven RAE ratings (5*, 5, 4, 3A, 3B, 2, 1). Theoreti-
cally this means that a journal’s score could run from 1 (only cited in RAE submissions from in-
stitutions with a 1 – lowest – rating) to 7 (only cited in RAE submissions from institutions with a
5* – highest – rating). Since academics in institutions rated 1 or 2 tend to publish very little, the
practical range is 3-7, while most journals are in the 4-7 range. The BJM04 list includes 562
journals that accounted for 83% of the citations in the RAE submissions. As recommended in
the article median scores were used rather than mean scores.
[Editor’s note] In order to keep the JQL to a manageable length, lower-ranked journals (ranking
1-4) of the BJM04 list were only added if they already featured in the JQL. Journals that had

4
less than 10 submissions are indicated with the respective score in brackets. Please note that
some journals only had 1 or 2 submissions and hence scores can be idiosyncratic.

Score Interpretation
7 Highest; only or mostly cited in RAE level 5* submissions
1.5-6.5 Intermediate scores reflect the frequency with which the journal was cited at
each RAE level, weighted against the RAE level.
1 Lowest; only or mostly cited in RAE level 1 submissions

Ess05 — ESSEC Business School Paris 2005/2006


ESSEC is one of the top French business schools. Its journal ranking list was established 14
years ago. The ranking of a journal was decided by a committee of seven ESSEC professors
with outstanding performance in research. Factors considered are the aim and scope of the
journal, the quality of its board, the SCCI impact factor, external opinions about the journal,
quality of the papers, readership, scale of distribution in libraries, journal lifetime, refereeing
process, etc. Although it is based on a relatively small number of key informants, the list was
included to provide a French perspective on journal rankings.
[Editor’s note] In order to keep the JQL to a manageable length, lower-ranked journals (2-4)
were only added if they already featured in the JQL. Also excluded were journals in the area of
law, politics, mathematics, computing (unless related to OR), psychology (unless related to
OB), and medicine as well as most French journals. Several journals had to be excluded be-
cause their titles were ambiguous and/or could not be found in public sources.]

Rank Interpretation
0 Recognised internationally as the best in the discipline
1 Top international journals
2 Lower level international or national journals
3 Professional journals aimed at an academic/managerial audience or academic
journals with limited circulation
4 Professional journals aimed at a managerial audience

HKB05 — Hong Kong Baptist University School of Business 2005


List approved by the Executive Committee of HKBU, April 2005. Ratings on a A , B+, B and B-
scale, where A represents the highest and B- the lowest rating.
[Editors note] Journals that were mentioned on the HKBU list, but not on any other list, were
only included if they had at least a B ranking. Law journals were excluded, as were Statistics &
Probability journals unless they already appeared on the list. The HKB00 list was used as a
basis, so journals that did appear on the 2000 list, but were no longer included in the HKB05
list are still included in the JQL.

Rank Interpretation
A Highest quality rating
B+
Intermediate quality ratings
B
B- Lowest quality rating

Theo05 — Theoharakis et al.


The Theoharakis et al. index aggregates perceived journal rankings based on surveys among
7 different populations of academics and PhD students in seven different scholarly fields
(Management, Marketing, Finance, Accounting, Economics, Information Systems and Statis-
tics). Respondents were asked to choose from a comprehensive list of journals in their respec-
tive field and rank up to 10 journals as top tier and up to 10 journals as second tier based on
each journal’s contribution to the discipline in terms of rigor, prestige and importance. The cal-

5
culated index combines a journal’s average rank position with its familiarity (i.e. the number of
respondents who placed the respective journal among their top 20), assigning a decreasing
weight to lower rank positions. The overall (world) index was used, which has a theoretical
maximum of 100. Index figures for the Information Systems subfield were calculated manually
from the available raw data.
The surveys have been published in a variety of discipline-based journals between 2001 and
2005. One paper is still under review. For more information on the various listings, see:
http://www.alba.edu.gr/survey/ For the purpose of the JQL the seven different surveys have
been combined to one aggregate list. It should be noted, however, that comparison across
sub-disciplines is only possible in a very limited way, since each survey is based on a different
survey population and ranks the journals relative to each other.
[Editor’s note] For journals that were included in the list of more than one scholarly field, the
highest index score is reported. In consultation with the authors, the ranking for Production and
Operations Management had to be excluded as it followed a different methodology. Statistics
journals were only included if they already featured in the JQL. The small set of other journals
that were not yet featured in the JQL were also ignored since they had low quality scores (be-
low 5 in most cases below 10 in virtually all cases).

Rank Interpretation
95 Highest quality rating
1.3-94.9 Intermediate quality ratings
1.2 Lowest quality rating

EJL06 — Erasmus Research Institute of Management Journals Listing


The strategic purpose of the ERIM Journals List is to contribute to the quality of the scientific
output of ERIM and to the academic reputation of the institute. The ERIM Journals List (EJL)
helps to define the core domain of ERIM and provides direction as to the type of publications
that ERIM would like to produce. The practical purpose is to guarantee to the ERIM members
and aspirant members that publications in the journals of the EJL will qualify for membership.
The EJL is believed to cover the whole field of research in management, as far as the ERIM
research programs are concerned. This does not imply that no credit will be given for publica-
tions in journals that are not on the EJL. It is impossible to make an exhaustive list of all the
journals in the domain of research in management. The ERIM journals list is based on judg-
ment by peers and (ISI) impact scores.
[Editor’s note] If a journal of the EJIM list was not already included in the JQL (which apart
from half a dozen Dutch journals was rare), it was only added if it had a score of STAR or P(A).

Rank Interpretation
STAR Top journals among P
P Best journals in the field
PA Top international journals. By 1/1/2009 current non-ISI journals will be trans-
ferred to the secondary list unless ISI with high impact has been attained
S Scientific refereed journals of a recognized academic reputation that do not
reach the quality levels of the Primary Set
SD Within the secondary list, a SDutch (3=1) category is distinguished. Mainly
Dutch journals belong to this group. Three or more publications in EJL (3=1)
journals count for 1 EJL S publication.

EJIS07 — European Journal of Information Systems 2007 Mingers & Harzing


This list provides an integrated ranking of all journal rankings available in the JQL as at De-
cember 2005 (17th edition). The details of its construction as well as a range of additional
analyses have been published in the European Journal of Information Systems, vol. 16, no. 4.
An earlier working paper is also available from http://www.harzing.com/papers.htm#jqlrank.

6
Two rankings are available (EJIS07 and EJIS07-CI); the second ranking includes the JIF for
2004 as part of its analysis.
[Editor’s note] Some journals were removed from this analysis because they had a very limited
number of rankings (e.g. all communication journals that were only ranked on the UQ list). Fur-
ther, several dozens of journals have been added to the JQL since this list was constructed.
Hence, ratings for some 100 journals are not available.

UQ07 — University of Queensland Journal Rating 2007


This list was originally constructed in 2003 in three stages:
1. Construction of a mega-database (over 2,000 titles) based on ratings and rankings from
over 120 sources.
2. Allocation of each title to one of 5 tiers (1 = highest, 5 = lowest) on the basis of the second
highest rating from the rating/ranking sources (i.e., the rating must be from at least two
sources).
3. The data base was supplied to the six discipline cluster leaders in the school as a resource
that they could use to construct the official list (which comprises 588 journals). They could
use the mega-database or any other source to justify each journal's rating.
[Editor’s note] In order to keep the JQL to a manageable length, lower-ranked journals (ranking
4&5) of the UQ list were only added if they already featured in the JQL. An exception was
made for Australasian journals and Entrepreneurship/Communication journals, since they were
underrepresented in the other ranking lists included in the JQL.
[Editor’s note] The JQL includes the updated (2007) version of the UQ list. Unfortunately, no
information is available on the process that was followed in updating in the 2003 list.

ABDC08 — Australian Business Deans Council Journal Rankings List


April 2008
The ABDC Journal List is a collaborative list developed by the Australian Business Deans
Council that seeks to list journals relevant to Australian business academics and group these
journals into four quality categories# ranging in descending order from:

Rank Interpretation
A* Best or leading journal in its field - publishes outstanding, original and rigorous
research that will shape the field. Acceptance rates are typically low and the edi-
torial board is dominated by leading scholars in the field or subfield, including
from top institutions in the world. Where relevant to the field or subfield, the jour-
nal has the highest impact factors or other indices of high reputation.
A Highly regarded journal in the field or subfield - publishes excellent research in
terms of originality, significance and rigour, has competitive submission and ac-
ceptance rates, excellent refereeing process and where relevant to the field or
subfield, has higher than average impact factors. Not all highly regarded journals
have high impact factors, especially those in niche areas.
B Well regarded journal in the field or subfield - publishes research of a good stan-
dard in terms of originality, significance and rigour and papers are fully refereed
according to good standards and practices but acceptance rates are higher than
for Tiers A* and A. Depending on the field or sub-field, will have a modest impact
factor and will be ISI listed.
C A recognised journal - publishes research that is of a modest standard and/or is

7
yet to establish its reputation because of its newness. This tier is more inclusive
than the others but only includes refereed journals.

The ABDC Journal List has been developed after wide consultation across the sector and our
stakeholders. The following organisations provided input into the process:
• Australian Council of Professors and Heads of Information Systems (ACPHIS)
• Accounting & Finance Association of Australia and New Zealand (AFAANZ)
• Association of Industrial Relations of Australia and New Zealand (AIRAANZ)
• Australia and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM)
• Australia and New Zealand Communication Association (ANZCA)
• Australia and New Zealand International Business Academy (ANZIBA)
• Australian and New Zealand Marketing Academy (ANZMAC)
• Australian Society for the Study of Labour History (ASSLH)
• Council of Law Deans (CLD)
• Council for Australian University Tourism and Hospitality Education (CAUTHE)
• Economics Society of Australia (ESA)
• Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies (ITLS)
• Public Relations Institute of Australia (PRIA)
• Sport Management Association of Australia and New Zealand (SMAANZ)
• Small Enterprise Association of Australia and New Zealand (SEAANZ)
• Society of Organisational Behaviour Australia (SOBA

[Editor’s note] In order to keep the JQL to a manageable length, lower-ranked journals (ranking
B and C) of the ABDC list were only added if they already featured in the JQL. An exception
was made for Australasian journals, since they were underrepresented in the other ranking
lists included in the JQL. Also excluded were journals in the area of law, education (unless re-
lated to Management), psychology (unless related to OB), general social sciences (unless re-
lated to Management) and medicine.

AST08 — Aston March 2008


New version of the Aston lists originally published in 1999/2003/2006. The 1999 list was based
on a large survey of opinions of academics of the Midlands universities. In 2003 this list was
sent to Aston research convenors for discussion within their group and each group then sent in
revised lists which formed the basis of the new rankings. Anybody who wanted to add a journal
was asked to provide evidence, preferably citation evidence from the World of Knowledge Data
Base, but failing that expert opinions in the field from other universities. In the 2006 “rankings
are made on the basis of citation rates, impact factors, interrogation of data bases and the
evaluations of senior academic staff in Aston Business School and other international business
schools. They are subject to change as the standing and impact of journals changes.” No in-
formation was available about the procedures for the 2008 update.
[Editors note] Journals that were mentioned on the Aston 2008 list, but not on any other list,
were only included if they had at least a 3 ranking. Law journals were excluded. Where jour-
nals were ranked differently in different subdisciplines, the highest rating was used.]

CNRS08 — Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (www.cnrs.fr) June


2008 (version 2.1)
Update of the 2004&2007 ranking of journals in Economics and Business constructed by the
French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique. The list of journals was constructed
through consultation with experts in the field, both in France and abroad. Directors of the vari-
ous research groups (and through them the researchers in these groups) were consulted in an
8
iterative process. Rankings of foreign universities were also consulted as well as listings such
as SSCI and EconLit. Only academic peer-reviewed journals were included in the list and
hence it excludes high-ranked professional journals such as Harvard Business Review. Rank-
ings are based on several criteria: academic reputation, audience and impact. It is the intention
of CNRS to re-evaluate the list on a regular basis. The 2.1 version only includes minor
changes and specified the conditions for regular updates. For more information see:
http://www.gate.cnrs.fr/spip.php?article200&lang=fr
[Editor’s note] In order to keep the JQL to a manageable length, lower-ranked journals (ranking
3-4) of the CNRS07 list were only added if they already featured in the JQL. Journals in Law,
Agricultural/Energy Economics and Health that were not already included in other lists in Busi-
ness and Management were also excluded as were French journals. The list seems to have a
rather strong emphasis on Economics. Six of the eight 1*-rated journals are in Economics,
while this is the case for half of the 1-rated journals. Nearly 75% of the Economics journals that
are ranked have either a 1 or a 2 ranking. Furthermore, whereas journals in F&A, OR/MS/POM
and MIS/KM still have a fair number of 1 and 2-rated journals, the vast majority of journals in
General Management & Strategy and Marketing are rated 3 or 4.

Rank Interpretation

WIE08 — WU Wien Journal Rating May 2008


List developed by the Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien (Vienna University of Economics and Busi-
ness Administration). For more information and the complete list see: http://bach.wu-
wien.ac.at/bachapp/cgi-bin/fides/fides.aspx/fides.aspx?journal=true;lang=DE
The 2001 journal list was updated in the context of an incentive scheme that provided financial
incentives for publication in top journals. As such the 2008 list only contains journals with an
A+ and A ranking and the WIE01 was therefore maintained in the JQL.
[Editor’s note] Journals that were mentioned on the WIE 2008 list, but were not included in the
JQL were only included if they had an A+ ranking.

VHB08 — Assoc. of Professors of Business in German speaking countries


A ranking developed on behalf of the Association of University Professors of Business in Ger-
man speaking countries (Verband der Hochschullehrer für Betriebswirtschaft - VHB). For more
information and the complete list see: http://pbwi2www.uni-paderborn.de/WWW/VHB/VHB-
Online.nsf/id/EN_VHB-JOURQUAL_2
There are no specific details available on the website about the procedures followed in this
update, but from the available information, it is most likely that similar procedures were fol-
lowed as for the VHB03, i.e. an individualised survey distributed via the Internet that asked
professors and university researchers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland assessed the sci-
entific quality of both articles and review processes of journals they were familiar with.
For those able to read German, an extended presentation and discussion of the VHB-
JOURQUAL methodology is described in: Hennig-Thurau, Thorsten; Walsh, Gianfranco;
Schrader, Ulf (2004): VHB-JOURQUAL: Ein Ranking von betriebswirtschaftlich-relevanten
Zeitschriften auf der Grundlage von Expertenurteilen, Zeitschrift für betriebswirtschaftliche For-
schung (zfbf), 56. Jg., pp. 520-543.

swirtschaft e.V, Volume 2, Issue 2, December 2009, pp. 180-204.

[Editor’s note] In order to keep the JQL to a manageable length, lower-ranked journals (ranking
B-E) of the VHB list were only added if they already featured in the JQL. The same principle
was applied to German-language journals. The list also included a range of Engineering and
Computer Science as well as Health journals that were not included in the JQL as they were
seen as less relevant to Management/Business/Economics.
In contrast to the VHB03 list journals with less than 10 respondents were not given a rating
and hence there are no scores in brackets in the VHB08 list. Since some journals score very
different in the VHB08 ranking as compared to the VHB03 list and other ranking lists, we de-
cided to maintain the VHB03 list.

Rank Interpretation
A+ VHB-JourQual Index ≥ 9
A VHB-JourQual Index ≥ 8
B VHB-JourQual Index ≥ 7
C VHB-JourQual Index ≥ 6
D VHB-JourQual Index ≥ 5

ABS09 — Association of Business Schools Academic Journal Quality Guide


March 2009
The first version of this list was published by Bristol Business School in June 2004, while the
second version appeared in 2005 as the Harvey Morris Business Journals List. The original list
stems from an analysis of where UK academics declared publications for the purposes of RAE
2001. Other journals were then added through comparison with other lists in circulation. Rank-
ings in these lists were standardized at this stage, bearing in mind the UK RAE 2008 classifica-
tion of research outputs as 4* (best work in the field), 3* (international excellence), 2* (interna-
tionally recognised) 1* (nationally recognised).
In converting the second edition of the HM List to the ABS list the editors followed a nine stage
procedure involving significant peer review and review of the quality standards, track records,
contents and processes of each journal. For the 2nd (March 2008) and 3rd edition (March 2009)
a review panel of experts considered feedback from academic associations, publishers and in-
dividual academics was considered. For further details see the Introduction: Context, Purpose
and Methodology Guide available on the following URL:
http://www.the-abs.org.uk/?id=257
[Editor’s note] In order to keep the JQL to a manageable length, lower-ranked journals (0, 1
and 2) were only added if they already featured in the JQL. Also excluded were journals in the
area of law, education (unless related to Management), psychology (unless related to OB),
general social sciences (unless related to Management) and medicine.

Rank Interpretation
4 A top journal
3 A highly regarded journal
2 A well regarded journal
1 A recognised journal
0 A non-recognised journal

Cra10 — Cranfield University School of Management February 2010 (7th ed)


This list provides guidelines to staff on which journals they should consider submitting their pa-
pers to. It should be noted that the grading for each journal is the School’s view, and guided
the School’s submission to the RAE 2008. The projected grading has been produced using a
large number of internal and external sources, including journal impact factors.
[Editor’s note] If a journal of the Cranfield list was not already included in the JQL (which was
rare), it was only added if it had a score of 3 or 4.
