Rankings, Metrics & Publishing in Peer Reviewed Journals Seminar Hosted by CoB
10 March 2019
As part of the Visiting Research Fellow Program run by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, the College of Business organized a seminar on ‘Rankings, Metrics and Publishing in Peer Reviewed Journals: Lessons from an Editor’s Perspective’.
The seminar, presented by Professor Thomas Lange, Head of the Department of Management, Leadership and Organizations, and the Professorial Chair in Management at Middlesex University Business School in the UK, highlighted the essential understanding and skills required when writing peer-reviewed articles in order to increase researchers’ chances of placing their work in premium scholarly journals. It offered tips and insights, ranging from dealing with the common experience of an editor’s rejection, authors’ common mistakes when preparing their work for submission, characteristics of what is deemed to be a ‘good journal’, and selling the manuscript to editors, referees and readers.
Professor Lange is also Founding Editor-in-Chief of Evidence-based HRM: A Global Forum for Empirical Scholarship, Associate Editor of the International Journal of Manpower and Editorial Advisory Board member of the British Journal of Management. His own scholarship has featured in several world elite journals, including articles in the Journal of Vocational Behavior, Human Resource Management (US), and The Leadership Quarterly. His competitive grant and consultancy record is extensive, accounting for more than US$6 million in external funding and includes projects for the European Commission, International Labour Office (ILO), and multiple global clients in business, industry and the public sector.
