The business deans want a new journal ranking – but not everybody thinks peer review is the way to do it
Submissions are now closed to the business deans review of journal rankings, with learned readers suggesting the various assessment panels have a bunch to work through. Or not, because there are suggestions peer review could be replaced by hard data, using transparent citation-based sources. A pass at this approach identifies eight new accounting journals that should be added to the list.
Overall, this could mean a major ranking reclassification of 35 journals – up and down – based on citation analysis.
