Call for Membership of the EAJG Scholarly Associations’ Advisory Board
EAJG Ltd. is seeking nominations by Friday 8 June to Julie Davies, from learned societies of up to two individuals (preferably from different countries) to be considered for membership of the EAJG Scholarly Associations’ Advisory Board for 3-5 years in the first instance.
EAJG has been established to publish The Guide to Academic Journal Quality in November 2013. This Guide is to provide a world-wide authoritative guide to journal quality in the fields of business and management, combining a balance of peer assessment and measurement, including sub-field normalisation.
The Founding Chair of the advisory board is Professor Rolf Cremer, Dean Emeritus of CEIBS and currently President, EBS University of Business and Law, Wiesbaden.
EAJG's managing board will select individuals from an international pool of possible members nominated.
Person Specification for Advisory Board members
• Currently employed in a business school outside the US on a contract that includes research
• Experience of academic leadership in teaching or research in business and management education
• Published widely in journals that are likely to appear in The Guide
• Recognised expertise in one or more of the sub-fields covered by The Guide
• Appreciation of the importance of The Guide and commitment to its general principles
• Able and willing to attend at least one committee meeting during a 3 year tenure
• Not currently holding a position as head of a learned society and not currently holding a position as the main editor of a journal (to avoid conflicts of interest)
• Not currently involved in the compilation of any other journal list comparable to The Guide
Members of the advisory board have two main roles. The first is to ensure that the Editors adhere to the general principles agreed for The Guide. The advisory board will, therefore, ensure that The Guide is not reduced to an algorithm, and that it does not succumb to lobbying from special interests.
The second role of the advisory board is to liaise with learned societies in various sub-fields to explain the principles of The Guide and to convey any concerns from the sub-field to the editors. This would include dealing with representations for journals to be included in The Guide or for journal ratings to be revised, all of which should come through the relevant learned societies. However, advisory board members should not be seen as merely delegates for specified learned societies. Members of the advisory board should act independently to ensure the overall integrity of The Guide.
