"ABS-list" Updated


EAWOP has participated in a revision of the so-called "ABS-list".

More officially, this concerns the Association of Business Schools’ Academic Journal Guide 2015. It replaces the earlier version dating from 2010. The journal guide names and ranks academic journals in the field of management & business, and is used widely in research assessments (for example in the UK) of academic research groups and in the evaluation of research portfolios of candidates applying for positions at business schools and management research departments (worldwide).

Marc van Veldhoven (Tilburg University) and David Guest (King's College London) represented EAWOP in the update project. They received excellent help from colleagues like Riccardo Peccei, Philip Dewe, Kevin Daniels & Birgit Schyns, amongst others. The updated ABS-list is now available on a dedicated website (so far it has apparently not yet been released as a pdf-document):

Those who know the previous version will notice that organizational psychology is now recognized as a field of expertise of its own (in the previous edition it was submerged within a general psychology category). Also, several dedicated journals in the area of work and organizational psychology have been ranked better in the 2015 version. For example, EJWOP is ranked a 3-star journal, rather than 2-star journal. All in all, work & organizational psychology is now better represented  in the ABS-list, and this is helpful to researchers who are working in the "business school" context of academia.
