Just like that...

March 5, 2015

The day the Association of Business Schools’ most recent ranking of journals was released, I woke to find that some of my publications had been transformed, as if by academic alchemy, from 3* lead to 4* gold (“The ratings game”, Research intelligence, 26 February). Although clearly “intellectually vacuous and empirically false”, as Dennis Tourish puts it, my value in the academic market has gone up. What’s not to like?
