Chapter 3: Getting published: a view from a journal editor and journal ranker

Geoffrey Wood and Pawan Budhwar


The opportunity to share your ideas with a wider audience is one of the most rewarding parts of being an academic. Finding your work side by side with leading scholars in the field, and being part of a wider debate is very much part of this. However, while getting published is considerably easier than coming up with genuinely new ideas, the task brings with it its own challenges; some, but not all, are due to the expansion of the business school ecosystem, with increasing numbers of schools raising their requirements as to where and how much scholars should publish. Most quality journals reject the overwhelming majority of submissions. Hence, publishing in leading journals has become increasingly competitive. This short review seeks to provide some insights to maximize your chances of success.
