Short impact (JCR) and long impact (JPI) of journals

We are updating the ERIM journalslist at the moment and as part of this procedure we are evaluating different measures of status and prestige of journals. The ERIM list is our main vehicle for focus and quality-policy in our filed of Research in Management at Erasmus University. We update this list every two year.

One of the issues is ofcourse the period we take into account when we look at the journal performance. We can use the JCR reports with the impact factors of ISI. This gives an inpression of the last two years. We could also take a longer time horizon for our classifications of journals. The following example takes a five year and a 20+ year perspective on the performance of journals for the subject category of Business. See how the long term quality journals perform here. It helps me to develop a more balanced view on impact and prestige of journals. If only those data were all free available on the web…
