Journal Quality List
The Journal Quality List is a collation of journal rankings from a variety of sources, published as a table, in order to aid academics target papers at journals of an appropriate standard.
It was created by Anne-Will Harzing, Professor in International Management and former Associate Dean Research at the University of Melbourne, Australia.
The Journal Quality List includes academic journals in areas of: Economics, Finance, Accounting, Management, and Marketing, and ranks each journal according to its perceived credibility to each academic institution.
Where available, the rankings for each journal are included from the following instititutions, amongst others:
HEC Paris 2011
AERES (Agence d’évaluation de la recherche et de l’enseignement supérieur) 2012
Financial Times 45 Ranking 2010
FNEGE (Foundation National pour l’Enseignement de la Gestion des Entreprises) 2013
ESSEC Business School Paris 2013
Erasmus Research Institute of Management Journals Listing 2012
Cranfield University School of Management 2012
University of Queensland 2011 (combined UQ and ERA ranking)
Danish Ministry ranking 2011
Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique 2011
British Association of Business Schools (ABS) Ranking 2010
European Journal of Information Systems 2007 (with and without CI)
Hong Kong Baptist University School of Business 2005
British Journal of Management 2004
The list presents the title of each academic journal, and its ranking according to each of its participating institutions, including its relevant scale.
For example, ‘Electronic markets’ journal obtained a ‘B’ rank, according to the HEC 2011 scale of A-C+, whereas it obtained a ‘1’ rating according to the Cranfield 2012 1-4 scale.

How is the Journal Impact Factor calculated?
The Journal Impact Factor assesses journals catalogued within Thomson Reuters ‘Web of Knowledge’. It is a measure of how often an article in a particular journal has been cited, on average, per year, therefore giving the journal’s relative influence or impact compared to journals in the same area.
The Impact Factor (IF) is based on the number of citations (A) in the current year, compared with items published in the previous 2 years, and the number of articles (B) published in the same two years:
This calculation is repeated each year, so that the changing impact factor for a journal can be observed over time
