79th Annual Meeting of the VHB

June 7-9, 2017

St. Gallen, Switzerland

 

 

VHB-JOURQUAL is a journal rating that has been published by the German Academic Association for Business Research (VHB) for many years. Following calls from many association members, it enables the assessment of the reputation of business research journals, especially ones that are not included in other available ratings or rankings, with a view to improving the possibilities of evaluating the quality of journals. VHB-JOURQUAL therefore increases transparency and improves orientation.  

 

In the latest rating, VHB-JOURQUAL3, the scientific quality of a journal is defined as the degree to which the journal in question advances business research as an academic discipline. It involves a subjective overall assessment that is naturally composed of the different information and experiences of everyone polled (e.g. individual experiences as an author, articles read, experiences of review processes, discussions with colleagues etc.). Pooled from all these polls, the rating expresses the perception of a journal’s academic quality in the German-speaking academic community.
