67th edition of the Journal Quality List on-line

New version of the Journal Quality List with updates for the Danish list, HCRES and CNRS


The latest version of the Journal Quality List is now available. The Journal Quality List is a collation of journal rankings from a variety of sources. The current version of the JQL contains 13 different rankings of nearly 950 journals. It contains academic journals in the following broad areas: Economics, Finance, Accounting, Management, and Marketing. The 67th edition of the JQL updates the Danish Ministry ranking to its 2018 edition, the CNRS ranking to its June 2020 edition, and the HCERES ranking to its 2020 edition. 

Please note: After more than 20 years of regular updates, continued maintenance the JQL has become a bit of a burden. So if you spot any inaccuracies or omissions, please contact me by email so that we can keep this resource accurate and accessible to all.
