  • Abstract

    Many institutions and governments grade academic journals for the evaluation of research. In this paper we implement a multi-bibliometric methodology for the evaluation of such a list of journal grades. We examine the grades assigned by the Australian Business Deans Council (ABDC) for over 750 journals in the fields of economics and statistics. First, we generate up to 48 bibliometric based grades for each journal based on the grade distribution implied by the ABDC. Second, we categorise the bibliometrics employing a cluster analysis of an interrater agreement statistic. Third, we present a visualisation of the consistency of the grading by journal. Finally, we list those journals where the majority of the matched bibliometrics indicate a higher or lower grade than their ABDC grade.
    The data available here are the results of the grades applied to the matched journals based on up to 48 bibliometric measures for each journal.
