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.
