The UK’s Association of Business Schools has long produced rankings of management journals. The rankings are used in many European management schools assessing the perceived quality of a given article and are thus used in making decisions about hiring and promotion. This screenshot gives you a sense of what the rankings look like.
In March of this year, the ABS finally released version 5 of the rankings. It replaced version 4, which has been freely available online as a pdf since 2010. To access the 2015 rankings, one had to register on the ABS website, log in, and then search through a cumbersome interface. Dr Steffan Roth of the Department of Management and Organization, ESC Rennes School of Business, has found a way to download the entire guide as a pdf. He has placed it online. Since it is a handy thing to have when making publication strategy, I thought I would share the guide. You can download it from Dr Roth’s website.
