ABDC JOURNAL QUALITY LIST REVIEW
Submissions for the 2022 ABDC Journal Quality List review have now closed. The revised ABDC Journal Quality List is expected to be released in February 2023.
The scope of the 2022 review is confined to:
- inclusion of new relevant journals;
- exclusion of non-relevant journals;
- exclusion of likely predatory or overly aggressive journals;
- journal name changes.
Submissions to the Panels that propose re-rating of journals will not be considered.
Please note that the 2022 review will not accommodate any re-rating of currently listed journals — such re-ratings will be the major focus of the next full review due in 2024–25.
To be eligible, submissions must come from Australia or New Zealand (ANZ), and from a relevant stakeholder group:
- An ANZ business school or faculty deemed to have a legitimate interest in the disciplines covered by the ABDC JQL.
- A relevant peak body representing ANZ academics.
- An individual or group of like-minded academics with formal affiliation/s to universities based in ANZ.
