The Australian Business Deans Council (ABDC) has appointed the Australian and international experts who will review the ABDC Business Journal Quality List.

They are Professor Kim Langfield-Smith, Emeritus Professor at Monash University in Australia and a Principal at Nous Group, and Professor Geoffrey Wood, Dean and Professor of International Business at Essex Business School in England.

The pair will review the methodology underpinning the list’s rankings to ensure the list remains up to date and of continued relevance to the Australian and New Zealand business academic community. 

The Journal Quality List was first published in 2007 and revised again in 2009, 2013 and 2016. More details of the 2018 review process are on the ABDC website at abdc.edu.au.

Earlier appointments include being Deputy Dean (Research) and Head of Department of Accounting and Finance at Monash Business School, and Head of the La Trobe University School of Business.

At Nous Group, Kim is working with universities on building research capability, benchmarking research performance, improving research integrity, designing teaching and learning strategies, and enhancing the student experience 

Past positions include being on two ERA Research Evaluation Committees; an international member of the New Zealand Performance Based Research Fund Research Assessment Panel and Chair of the ABDC business researchers’ network, BARDsNet, from 2009 to 2012.

She also chaired the Accounting & Finance Association of Australia and New Zealand

(AFAANZ) from 2000-2001; was Chair of the Professional Qualifications Advisory and Accreditation Advisory Committees of CPA Australia; and was a member of the International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB).
