Abstract
Ranking research productivity of institutions periodically is of a great necessity nowadays, for that can not only help understand the latest development level of related fields but also contribute to finding gaps and quickly improve. In previous studies, the number of publications and further impact factors of journals is two widely used indexes to measure research productivity. However, impact factors do not always tally with a quality of the journal, which will lead to a bias of research productivity. Given this, a new journal rating adjusted publications (JRAP) index is constructed in this paper, which is based on the journal rating of the ABS journal guide. It takes the quantity of publications and the quality of the publications into account at the same time. Compared with impact factors, academic journal guide can provide more authoritative and accurate measurement to the quality of journals. Experiments are conducted to rank Asia---Pacific institutions in business and management area based on JRAP, and it is the first time to rank Asia---Pacific institutions systematically. Ranking of institutions measured by three methods is also given. Compared the results obtained by three different rank methods, although institutions ranked in the top places keep the same, the specific rank differs. The results indicate that JRAP do prefer the institutions perform well in paper quantity and quality of journals.

Abstract In this work we develop new journal classification methods based on the h-index. The introduction of the h-index for research evaluation has attracted much attention in the bibliometric study and research quality evaluation. The main purpose of using an h-index is to compare the index for different research units (e.g. researchers, journals, etc.) to differentiate their research performance. However the h-index is defined by only comparing citations counts of one’s own publications, it ...

The main methods for ranking academic journals are peer review based approaches and applications of various bibliometric indicators, or a mixture of the two. Such rankings are used to assess the overall quality of journals, although their real meaning remains unclear as long as the notion of "quality' is not precisely defined. In our approach we examine journal evaluation from the perspective of knowledge accumulation taking the citation distribution into account. A new indicator, the sub-impact...

The emergence of journal quality lists such as that issued by the UK’s Association of Business Schools (ABS) has instigated a wave of ‘journal list fetishism’ throughout the business school sector. Business school deans and research managers have become fixated on whether the publication records of current staff and new applicants include the requisite number of ‘hits’ in the best ranked journals. Little attention is paid to additional measures of research quality, or to the broader context with...

We use a quality-based approach to assess contributing institutions and authors in international business (IB) research. Specifically, we use Google Scholar citations of individual articles to weigh the number of IB research articles in core IB and other non-IB elite journals. Our approach mitigates concerns about the quality difference among articles across different journals and within individual journals. We find evidence to suggest that IB research in the European and Asia-Pacific regions ex...

The authors rank the management schools in Greater China (including Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau) based on their academic publications in the Social Sciences Citation Index management and business journals from 2000 to 2010. Following K. Ritzberger's (2008) and X. Yu and Z. Gao's (2010) ranking method, the authors develop six indices to rank institutions from several aspects, including both the quantity and quality of publications. By doing so, they provide a clear viewpoint abou...

A recent critique of the use of journal impact factors (IF) by Vanclay noted imprecision and misuses of IF. However, the substantial alternatives he suggested offer no clear improvement over IF as a single measure of scholarly impact of a journal, leaving IF as not yet replaceable.

Abstract This paper ranks accounting’s education authors who teach at institutions located in the United States and Canada. During the 46-year period from 1966 through 2011 that we examined, 13 journals published accounting education papers; the publication period for each journal varies. The data indicate that only 31.4% of accounting’s 4855 doctoral faculty who teach at schools in North America have one or more publications in these 13 journals. For those doctorates still teaching, the researc...

Meta-syntheses from experts’ judgements and quantitative metrics are two main forms of evaluation. But they both have limitations. This paper constructs a framework for mapping the evaluation results between quantitative metrics and experts’ judgements such that they may be solved. In this way, the weights of metrics in quantitative evaluation are objectively obtained, and the validity of the results can be testified. Weighted average percentile (WAP) is employed to aggregate different experts’ ...

Abstract Periodically ranking institutional research productivity is necessary not only to understand the status of the development of related fields but also to identify gaps and take appropriate corrective steps. Many bibliometric indicators contribute to the assessment of institutional research productivity, but the appropriateness of the indicator and the relationships between different indicators are topics that have not been addressed. For this reason, an indicator framework for the rankin...

Important journals usually guide the research and development directions in academic circles. Therefore, it is necessary to find the important journals among a number of academic journals. This study presents a model named the multiple-link, mutually reinforced journal-ranking (MLMRJR) model based on the PageRank and the Hyperlink-Induced Topics Search algorithms that considers not only the quantity and quality of citations in intra-networks, but also the mutual reinforcement in inter-networks. ...

It has been worthy of notice that the number of scientific researchers has experienced a rapid growth in China. Meanwhile, the strict restriction to the total number and the position structure of researchers has exerted great pressure on the Chinese researchers. The decision makers have noticed this dilemma and a quantitative predicting result for decision support is in need. This paper puts forward a data-driven dynamic programming model to estimate the research position demand gap based on the...
