This international report on scholarly impact may interest some at the AIB. The Academy of Management (AOM) has just published a report:
“Measuring and Achieving Scholarly Impact”. The full report and a summary of findings (including major audiences for research, major indicators of scholarly impact, geographic breakdowns on measures, etc.) is available here – http://aom.org/About-AOM/StrategicPlan/Scholarly-Impact-Report.aspx
The project consisted of two interrelated parts: a qualitative study and quantitative survey on scholarly impact, and its meaning to the AOM’s various constituencies. A team of about 30 worked on this report for about three years. To the best of my knowledge, the report constitutes the first time a major academic association has undertaken a systematic, empirical inquiry of this nature: the results have relevance for other fields in the Social Sciences that attempt to quantify scholarly impact.
I wish you all Happy Holidays!
