UNITED KINGDOM, July 2013 - Emerald Group Publishing Limited is delighted to announce the winners of its 2013 Citation of Excellence Awards. Now in their seventeenth year, these distinguished annual awards recognize the 50 most outstanding articles published by the top 300 management journals in the world, including, for example, Harvard Business Review, Journal of Marketing, Journal of Finance, Strategic Management Journal, MIT Sloan Management Review, and McKinsey Quarterly.
With 15,000 article abstracts published in these journals annually, receiving a Citation of Excellence is an extraordinary achievement and represents one of the highest accolades that an author can achieve. Authors of the winning articles receive an official certificate and logo to display on their work. The award brings with it peer recognition and, frequently, increases in research funding.
For 2013 Emerald has again been working with Professor Anne-Wil Harzing, using the Publish or Perish software program, to select the winners using a two-tier system based on citations and research impact, as follows:
Professor Anne-Wil Harzing, a recognized authority on journal quality and citation metrics, comments: “I am happy Emerald is using Publish or Perish to make their first selection for the Citation of Excellence Awards. Publish or Perish is based on Google Scholar data, which provide a more comprehensive assessment of research impact than traditional sources for citation data such as ISI and Scopus. As a result it better reflects Emerald's mission to publish work with a broader societal impact.”
A full list of the 2013 winners, as well as lists of previous winners, is available at:
