Rating outlets for health care management research: An update and extension

Academic Article


  • The ongoing discussion of our intellectual community requires that occasionally an effort be made to value the outlets for our research and erect guideposts for our colleagues to signal important contributions to our discipline. This study extends previous work through a survey sent to 1,254 academics involved in health care management research that asked them to rate 54 potential outlets for their research. Ratings were made on journal knowledge, quality, and relevance. Two survey waves resulted in 389 responses (adjusted response rate 37.8 percent). For quality and relevance, journal rankings were separated into A, B, and C categories. The results correlated strongly with the two previous studies in this area. This study extends previous research and provides a categorization of journals on knowledge, quality, and relevance that may assist in faculty performance evaluation and identification of appropriate outlets for manuscripts.
