ABS's 2015 Academic Journal Guide


The UK-based Association of Business Schools recently published the 2015 Academic Journal Guide (AJG) as an update to its 2010 version, sparking controversy in its press coverage. Following a study I've been performing on the impact factor of computer science journals for the past eight years based on the yearly Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge updates of its Journal Citation Reports, I decided to look at what has changed in the AJG from 2010 to 2015.

Both lists have 570 journals with the same ranking. However, the 2015 list is considerably expanded (1388 entries) from the 2010 version (825 entries). Also, many journals changed rank, and some were removed.

Journals in the top (4*) AJG category

The following 33 journals are listed in the 2015 AJG as journals of distinction; according to the report "recognised world-wide as exemplars of excellence".

Journals dropped from the AJG in 2015

The 2015 list lacks 30 journals that were included in the 2010 list. These include three software-related journals, ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology, IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, and Information and Software Technology (disclaimer: I've published in all of them), indicating an unhealthy distancing of the AJG from software in an era where software is eating the world. Even more oddly, the 2015 list also drops Science (2013 JCR impact factor 31.5) from the list. Perhaps this is better than the indignity of listing it in the 2010 in its lowest (1) category. This can't be British spite against a stellar US publication, because the AJG also drops from the 2015 list the British Medical Journal (2013 JCR impact factor 16.3), and has never included Nature (2013 JCR impact factor 42.3).

Journals added to the AJG in 2015

A large number of journals (603) were added to the list in 2015. Most of them enter the list in one of the lowest two classifications (346 classified as "1" and 182 classified as "2") diluting the guide's composition toward the bottom. Specifically, in 2010 journals classified as "1" comprised 25% of the entries, while in 2015 this figure has risen to 35%.
