SAGE Unveils White Paper Showing How Business Schools Measure Research Impact

SAGE published a white paper, Measuring Societal Impact in Business & Management Research: From Challenges to Change (registration required), that shows critical gaps in the metrics that business schools use to evaluate research. It takes information from surveys of business school academics from the Academy of Management, SAGE, Financial Times, and Times Higher Education and reviews the commonly used measures of scholarly impact, while offering recommendations for a more responsible research environment within the business school ecosystem.

Key findings include the following:

  • While historically academics in management have seen their work as being most influential within their field, the survey found that 54 percent consider wider impacts as either strongly or intensely important.
  • 59 percent agree that interdisciplinary research—research that breaks out of the management-only silo—is more important than purely disciplinary research. However, ‘interdisciplinary research is also more difficult to publish.’
  • Those surveyed still see traditional markers of impact—specifically, publishing in journals with high impact factor—as the most used proxy for academic standing in their field.

For more information, read the press release.
