California Management Review Ranks Tops in Its Class

A new Thomson Reuters analysis of the impact of top business journals ranked the Haas School’s  California Management Review (CMR) higher than its competitors.

CMR’s current impact factor is 1.667 and its 5-year impact factor is 2.554. Both scores are higher than any other competing business journal, including some published by other top business schools such as the Harvard Business Review and the MIT Sloan Management Review. The score comes from the most recent release of Journal Citation Reports from Thomson Reuters.

“A journal’s impact factor measures the frequency with which its articles are cited in other academic publications,” says Haas Professor David Vogel, CMR’s longtime editor. “CMR’s high impact factor is testimony to its increasing impact and visibility within the academic community.”

Some of the more popular articles in California Management Review in recent years include “How to Capture Value from Innovation” by Professor David Teece and “Innovation as a Learning Process: Embedding Design Thinking” by Senior Lecturer Sara Beckman.

Since its founding in 1955 at Berkeley, CMR has served as a bridge of communication between those who study management and those who practice it. Learn about California Management Review at
