The journal impact factor is a gauge of academic influence among top journals. It’s based on how frequently a journal’s articles are cited by scholars who publish in a collection of top social science journals. California Management Review articles were cited 7,459 times in 2020.

While California Management Review publishes articles from researchers around the world, the two most-cited articles for the year were by Berkeley Haas faculty.

Tusher Professor in Global Business

“Our recent outstanding impact factor is evidence of our ability to seek out and attract high-quality submissions,” said Editor-in-Chief David Vogel, professor emeritus at Berkeley Haas. “It also reflects our increased use of social  media to  publicize what we publish. I am very proud of what we are doing at California Management Review.”
