IFSAM executive committee response to FT survey on management journals

Webinar on Jan 29, 2021 3-5 pm CET


Our executive committee is concerned with the recent survey launched by Financial Times requesting #management  #school  #deans and #academics to vote for different scientific and practitioner  #journals in the field.

This apparently democratic procedure which is asymmetrically reaching the field doesn’t seem to be the best procedure to judge the #quality of management #research and #publications.

We are organizing a webinar on Jan 29, 2021 3-5 pm CET with leaders in the field across the world to debate this critical issue which crucially impacts our community and its research contribution to society.

Our free webinar will have as panelists the following leaders in the field across the world involved as editors or former editors of top journals, scholarly and field associations’ leaders, and school and university administrators: Herman AguinisJerry DavisProfessor Gerardine DoyleHenrich R. Greve, and Zhen Tang. , senior editor at Financial Times in charge of higher education, including the business schools’ rankings, will also participate in the panel.

Patricia Genoe McLaren (ASAC president) and Xavier Castañer (our president elect) will co-chair the panel.
