Abstract

Finance journal quality is a critical issue for faculty annual evaluations, for the tenure and promotion process, and for the administration of faculty workload plans. Unlike other studies that use objective measures(such as citation frequencies) to rate journals, this study focuses on the opinions of chairpersons about the relative quality of 55 finance, insurance, and real estate journals. A sample of 218 finance department chairpersons at AACSB accredited business schools were surveyed, and 125 responses were received (57.34% response rate). Besides overall aggregate scores, responses are segregated and tested for differences across several dimensions. The results offer interesting and current insight on general perceptions of journal quality.
