Top 50 Journals in the FT Research Rank (FT50 journals)

In May of 2016, the Financial Times [1,2] carried out an analysis of the journals that are taken into consideration for its research rating. As a direct consequence of this change, the total number of journals taken into consideration increased from 45 to 50.
The 200 odd business schools that take part in either the FT Global MBA, Executive MBA or Online MBA rankings were requested to submit up to five new publications to add and five journals to delete from the previous list. A total of 140 schools participated, which equates to a response rate of 67%. Votes were submitted.
The Academy of Management Perspectives, the California Management Review, the Journal of the American Statistical Association, and the RAND Journal of Economics were the four journals that garnered more than sixty percent of the votes apiece, thus we made the decision to remove them from the list of 10 journals that were chosen for further examination.

The nine journals (*) that received the highest votes were included to the list after being selected from a total of 150 new journals that were recommended.

The Financial Times Research rank, which is a component of the Global MBA, EMBA, and Online MBA rankings, was compiled using the following list, which provides data on the 50 publications that were utilised in the process.
