Published: 14 January 2015 by MDPI in 1st Electronic Conference of MDPI Editors-in-Chief session Measuring Research
Abstract: The perceived quality and impact of academic journals are important in evaluating the perceived research performance of individual researchers for hiring, tenure and promotion decisions.Rightly or wrongly, such perceived journal quality and impact are typically used as a proxy for the quality of an academic paper, as publication in a highly regarded journal is seen as imparting an important signal regarding the purported quality of the published paper. This presentation is based on Chang, C.-L and M. McAleer (2014),"Just how good are the top three journals in finance? An assessment based on quantity and quality citations", Annals of Financial Economics, 9(1), 2014, 1-31.
