Transcending the (non)sense of academic rankings
In 2009 Nancy Adler and I published a paper in the Academy of Management Learning and Education dealing with the problematic nature of academic ranking systems.
- Adler, N.; Harzing, A.W. (2009) When Knowledge Wins: Transcending the sense and nonsense of academic rankings, The Academy of Management Learning & Education, 8(1): 72-95. Available online... - Publisher’s version
To my considerable surprise it became one of my most highly cited papers, quite ironic for a paper dealing with the problematic nature of research evaluation. The paper even went on to win the AMLE Outstanding article of the year award. This month it was selected as one of 30 articles in the new Principles for Responsible Management Education Virtual Collection.
