I am delighted to report that the impact factor (SSCI) has increased 80 per cent to 1.75. This puts us in the top league of journals in the field of business and management studies. Although we don't advocate the journal ranking game on its own, we can celebrate the fact that our efforts to make the journal more relevant and meaningful for the field has started bearing fruit.
Thank you very much for your work for the journal. This is our collective achievement and we should see the benefits of this soon as we receive better calibre of paper submissions going forward.
Could you please, if you are able, inform your national and associated academies of the improvements to the standing of the EMR.
Mustafa Ozbilgin, Editor in Chief
