Find high quality and high impact journals
`High quality academic journals are found across a range of Library databases and journal subscriptions including Business Source Complete, Emerald, JSTOR, and Science Direct.

However, on occasion, you may want to limit your search to the highest ranked journals in your field. The following sources enable you to find out which journals fall into this category.
The Guide can be accessed by following the link and registering with the site.The Chartered Association of Business Schools (CABS) Academic Journal Guide is based on peer review, citation statistics and editorial judgements. Each journal is awarded a grade of one, two, three or four.
The subjects covered include: accountancy, business history, economics, business ethics and governance, finance, general management, human resource management, international business and area studies, information management, innovation, marketing, psychology and social sciences.
The JCR index (available via our Web of Science database) gives each journal a JIF - a journal impact factor. A journal’s JIF for a given year is the average number of citations received in that year by articles published in the journal in the previous two years. The JCR also shows the most frequently cited journals in a field.
Note: Citations do not necessarily indicate quality – individuals may be citing an article to dispute its findings and authors may regularly cite their own work.
