Bruce Lewis (Wake Forest) and Gary Templeton (Mississippi State University) recently published an article that ranks the top 100 academic business journals (see citation below). Among other things, the article evaluates business journals regarding each journal’s individual quality. They base their results on a sample of 72 institutional journal lists commonly used in faculty research evaluations. The scoring procedure is described in Appendix A and the top 100 business journals based on our ranking are listed in Appendix B.
The Journal of Financial Research ranked 63rd among all business journals in the Lewis and Templeton study.
