California Management Review Earns Higher Research Impact Factor
July 15, 2018
In its latest ranking of global business and management journals, Thomson Reuters released the information that California Management Review has an increased single-year journal impact factor of 3.302.
Based on the number of highly-cited publications that a journal has released in the preceding year, the journal impact factor is the primary criteria by which scholars evaluate the quality and importance of a journal’s published research.
As part of a new relationship with SAGE Journals, a premier publisher of academic management research, California management Review recently conducted an audit and expansion of its editorial board. The overall number of board members was increased, from 24 to 48 – an expansion motivated by the desire to promote greater visibility of the journal and its research among academics and practitioners outside of California.
In addition to expanding its editorial board, California Management Review worked with SAGE Journals to establish a new international advisory board, comprising 24 faculty from Europe and Asia. As frequent contributors to the journal, these faculty can help to monitor emerging trends in regions outside the United States.
California Management Review, founded in 1958, serves as a bridge of communication between those who study management and those who practice it. The journal publishes quarterly issues that address subjects that are of immediate interest to practicing managers around the world. The journal’s 60th anniversary issue was released last year.
