What Next for the Association of Business Schools' Guide to Academic Journal Quality?

Professor Michael Rowlinson (School of Business and Management, Queen Mary University of London)

CA110 (SAC Room), Cairnes School of Business & Economics, NUI Galway 11:00 :: 1st February 2012

Professor Rowlinson will give a seminar on the future of the Association of Business Schools' Guide to Academic Journal Quality. The ABS Academic Journal Quality Guide is a hybrid based partly on peer review, partly on statistical information relating to citation, and partly upon editorial judgments following on from the detailed evaluation of many hundreds of publications over a long period.

It provides guides to the range, subject matter and relative quality of journals in which business and management and economics academics might publish the results of their research - empirical and theoretical. The Journals included cover a wide range of disciplines, fields and sub-fields within the social sciences, representing an inclusive approach to what constitutes business and management research.

Professor Rowlinson's research interests are in Organisation Theory, Critical Management Studies, as well as Management and Organisational History. He has explored the tensions between Organisation Studies and Business History, and his last major research project, funded by the ESRC under the Evolution of Business Knowledge Programme, explored the relation between documentary corporate history and knowledge management, examining how companies use historical knowledge of the past in the present.

He is currently editor of the journal Management & Organizational History and an editor of the Association of Business Schools' Academic Journal Quality Guide.
