Faculty of Business and Law Journal Quality and Book Publisher Quality Rankings
The Faculty Research Committee has developed an agreed ranking of journal and book publisher quality, to assist our authors in selecting the best quality publishing outlet for their research. The journal quality rankings are based on the ABDC Journal Quality List, with additional material incorporated from the CORE list (for Information Systems and Business Analytics and the DBS) and the Washington and Lee ranking (for the Deakin Law School).
These Faculty of Business and Law quality journal and book rankings are available on the BL staff intranet.
Staff preparing applications for internal funding (including the Academic Studies Program) should include the Faculty ranking details for both previous and planned publications, as part of their application.
Where Should I Publish?
In addition to the Faculty rankings listed above, Deakin University has developed an online tool to provide guidance on possible publication outlets. Where Should I Publish provides qualitative information about journals from four different ranking systems: ARWU Journal List, Thomson Reuters Impact Factor, SCImago Journal Ranking, and the ABDC Journal Quality List.
