At its inception, Financial Management (FM) had the difficult mission of serving the needs of all members of the Financial Management Association (FMA), both academic and practitioner. That mission has now changed. FM's revised mission is to focus solely on the publication of original scholarly research of the highest quality. This paper employs citation analysis to evaluate FM's relative performance among academic research journals in finance. The evidence from the analysis is consistent across all measures. FM ranks among the top five finance journals. Additionally, the trend is toward increasing influence.
