Research with impact

Publications on shelf

Over the summer Business School academics have seen nine articles accepted for publication in journals rated ‘4’ or ‘4*’ in the Chartered Association of Business School’s Academic Journal Guide 2015, the two highest quality rankings possible.

The Guide is based upon peer review, editorial and expert judgements following the evaluation of many hundreds of publications, and is informed by statistical information relating to citation. It is a guide to the range, subject matter and relative quality of journals in which business and management academics publish their research.

The successful papers cover a broad spectrum of subjects and include:

  • P Buckley, Towards a renaissance in international business research? Big questions, grand challenges, and the future of IB scholarship, Journal of International Business Studies
  • M Griffin, Organizational Readiness: Culturally Mediated Learning through Disney Animation, Academy of Management Learning and Education
