Ross Ranked No. 1 in Management Journal Productivity

4/1/2013 --

School's faculty the most successful in getting published in top management journals over the past five years, according to joint Texas A&M University and University of Florida study.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Ross School of Business faculty have been the most productive over the past five years in getting research published in the top eight management journals.

That's according to a joint study of U.S. and Canadian business schools performed by the Texas A&M University and the University of Florida. The journals analyzed in the study publish research on the topics of management, strategy, organizational theory, and organizational behavior/human resources.

Ross topped the "2008-12 Aggregated Management Department Productivity Rankings" list, with 78 articles in the major management journals during that time.

"We are very proud of this distinction," says Wallace Hopp, associate dean for faculty and research. "Research is the basis of everything we do at the Ross School. Teaching, program development, consulting — all of these are driven by the innovative perspective on business that comes from our research. That we have been so prolific in the top journals is testament to both the number of gifted scholars and the stimulating intellectual environment of the Ross School."

The study ranked schools by the amount of research published in:

  • Academy of Management Journal
  • Academy of Management Review
  • Administrative Science Quarterly
  • Journal of Applied Psychology
  • Organization Science
  • Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes
  • Personnel Psychology
  • Strategic Management Journal
