California Management Review’s Single-Year Impact Factor Reaches 5.0 in Latest Ranking
June 27, 2019
Berkeley Haas’s academic management journal, California Management Review, received an updated single-year impact factor of 5.0, and a five-year impact factor of 5.331 in a recent ranking of global research publications. This marks the fourth consecutive year the journal improved its ranking and position among the top business journals.
A journal’s impact factor is a measure of how frequently its articles are cited by scholars in their own research, and it has become an important indicator of a journal’s academic reputation.
The most frequently cited recent article in California Management Review was written by Berkeley Haas faculty member David Teece. “Dynamic Capabilities and Organizational Agility: Risk, Uncertainty, and Strategy in the Innovation Economy” focuses on the concept of agility within established businesses. While organizations are often compelled to transform to remain competitive, Teece asserts that perpetual transformation is not always the best option, and proceeds to draw an important distinction between uncertainty and risk. The article emphasizes the need to respond to the uncertainty of innovation through the development of dynamic capabilities.
