Abstract
Using 4-year data (1990, 1994, 1998, and 2002), we have provided a ranking of schools with international business (IB) orientation based on the membership of editorial boards of 30 leading international business journals. Participation on the editorial boards of quality journals is highly selective, and should provide a quality indication of the schools. Both quality-unadjusted and adjusted board membership-based ranking are calculated in this study. Several interesting findings are worth noting. First, US schools play a significant leadership role among the leading IB programs. Second, the findings of this study also show the major contribution of non-US schools, which confirms the importance of the global nature of the IB discipline. Third, the top-ranked schools share a number of characteristics. Finally, the correlation among different ranking criteria can be low, particularly for the top-ranked schools, suggesting that care should be exercised in interpreting school ranking.

Using 10 years of publication data (1995-2004) from four leading international business journals, we examine global patterns of international business research and school rankings. Although US institutions still lead in the international business research, non-US schools are making significant progress. Asian-Pacific and European schools are well represented among the schools that account for the most articles appearing in the four journals. International collaboration between scholars across th...

We examine membership on editorial boards of sixteen leading finance journals in 1985, 1990, 1995, and 2000. Membership on a board of a high-quality journal is highly selective. Editors and members of editorial boards of quality journals are trusted by their peers who submit their research for publication consideration. Thus, the number of faculty represented on editorial boards of quality journals should provide a quality indication of the finance department. We use membership representation to...

Academic institutions are ranked on a global scale in terms of finance literature productivity. US institutions are dominant in academic publishing although European and Asian institutions have improved significantly in recent years. Additionally, we study the relationship between the quality of human capital and the likelihood of an upward career move. Our results show that an individual relocates to a higher-ranked institution exhibits a research record that is two times stronger than that of ...

This study seeks to assess and rank the relative quality of 30 international business journals using both a citation analysis and a survey approach. Journal rankings are presented using both approaches in addition to a composite ranking. The rankings provide an objective analysis of journal quality for tenure and promotion committees, for IB researchers considering journal submission options and provide the academic community with a better understanding of which international business publicatio...

Abstract There is considerable interest both in the publishing activities of academics and in the relevance of research to accounting practitioners. This study introduces a fresh perspective to the debate by examining the publishing performance of British academic institutions in professional journals over the period 1987 to 1996 and the possible influence of the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) on this performance. To carry out the research, an analysis was conducted of all articles attribute...

This article examines the standing of the Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS) among scholarly journals, and changes in its influence, over a 11 year period (1981 to 1991) using a variety of citation indices. We suggested that two new measures—a prestige index and a trajectory index—are helpful in assessing a journal's influence and reputation. We estimate these, as well as several standard citation measures, to gauge JIBS′ progress in the recent past. We find that JIBS does well on ...

Abstract Scholarly productivity is an important issue for all academic disciplines. Empirical examinations of career research productivity have not been conducted in the marketing discipline, however. This study reports the analysis and classification of total and career research publication activity for a cohort of 374 marketing academicians over a 20-year period. The analysis revealed seven different career patterns as well as substantial differences in overall levels of career research produc...

The qualitative assessment of scholarly journals plays an important role in promotion and tenure decisions, recognition, scholarly dialogue, and the contribution to the knowledge base of marketing. To aid marketing faculty and administrators in this assessment, the latest perceptions among marketing faculty regarding the relative hierarchical positioning of scholarly marketing journals are reviewed. Besides the overall ranking, the study segments journals along two dimensions: AACSB- / non-AASCB...

Abstract Assessing the scholarly impact of academic institutions has become increasingly important. The achievements of editorial board members can create benchmarks for research excellence and can be used to evaluate both individual and institutional performance. This paper proposes a new method based on journal editor data for assessing an institution’s scholarly impact. In this paper, a journal editorship index (JEI) that simultaneously accounts for the journal rating (JR), editor title (ET),...

ABSTRACTThis article proposes a conceptual framework for instilling and fostering a global mindset among students of business in general and international business in particular. Students learning to become global managers must first have an open mindset and be aware of changes in themselves. When managers encounter problems at a global firm, they need to consider the unique situations that cause problems and create appropriate solutions. Different settings or environments require different appr...

Although there are numerous studies that rank undergraduate colleges and universities, the selection of the “best value” undergraduate business program is a formidable task for prospective students. This study uses data envelopment analysis (DEA), a linear programming-based tool, to evaluate undergraduate b...

Casopis kao komunikacijski medij u znanstvenoj i akademskoj zajednici i u drustvenim i u humanistickim znanostima ima vrlo izraženu ulogu. Profil ca¬sopisa relevantan je pokazatelj stanja u određenoj znanstvenoj disciplini a njegovu kvalitetu osim urednika određuje i urednistvo. Cilj ovog istraživanja bio je na uzorku hrvatskih drustveno-humanistickih casopisa (N=152) istražiti sastav urednistava s obzirom na udio domacih i stranih clanova, njihovu produktivnost i h-index mjerene prema podacima ...
