Call for submissions for the 2013 Review of the ABDC Journal List is now closed. Please note, all submissions will be made publicly available.
Submissions will only be valid and accepted if on the appropriate form and emanating from within the Australian New Zealand (ANZ) academic environment. Submissions can be made from a Business School/Faculty, a relevant Peak Body representing academics, or an academic or groups with formal affiliation to a university(ies), within ANZ. For full details of eligibility, see Section 8 of the ‘Instructions to Submitters’ document.
The review process accommodates four distinct scenarios each linking to a particular form:
• Scenario 1: A relevant journal is missing from the ABDC 2010 list – complete FORM A
• Scenario 2: A current ABDC-rated journal is “over-rated” in the ABDC 2010 list – complete FORM B (i.e. “downgrade” request)
• Scenario 3: A current ABDC-rated journal is “under-rated” in the ABDC 2010 list – complete FORM C (i.e “upgrade” request)
• Scenario 4: A current ABDC-rated journal is “mis-classified” in the ABDC 2010 list – complete FORM D (NB: there is scope here also for recommending a changed rating if desired)
Each template/form comprises three pages:
• Page 1: Gives key information relevant to the designated scenario
• Page 2: Executive Summary (250 word limit confined to one page)
• Page 3: Provides a check list for supplementary appendices that attach to the submission (allows for detailed information supporting their case)
Submissions will be reviewed during June-July by the review panels and the BARDsNet Executive. A draft list will be available for comment 1-31 August. Should you feel the need to respond, instructions advising how to make a valid response to the draft revised list will be published on this website on 1 August. An external review will also occur during this period with the final revised list to be published and announced in September.
