Dear KM/IC Colleague:
I hope all is well.
I thought that you would be interested in this recent paper on journal rankings within the field of knowledge management and intellectual capital (KM/IC). This scientometric study consisted of: i) a bibliographic and citation analysis of the top 21 journals in the field using the Harzing PoP tool, and ii) a survey of 233 active researchers who were asked to rank each journal.
The table of rankings below is an integration of both methodologies. You can also download a copy of the full study.
Enjoy and have a great summer!
Nick Bontis, Ph.D.
