SCM Group Top in Research Rankings

The latest ranking of researchers from German-speaking countries shows the outstanding performance of the members of the WHU SCM Group. On the website forschungsmonitoring.org different rankings are provided depending on the underlying journal lists.

Four categories are shown:

  1. Author rankings – for this, only publications from the years 2014 to 2018 and forthcoming articles were considered
  2. Under 40 rankings – here, only researchers who are younger than 40 years of age were considered
  3. Lifetime rankings – for this, all publications of the respective researcher were considered
  4. University rankings – for this, only publications from the years 2009 to 2018 were considered

A detailed explanation of the different lists and weights is provided on the website forschungsmonitoring.org

The key difference between the two is that the Scimago Journal Rank (SJR) takes into account citation information. In contrast, the VHB list is not based on such academic impact but the result of a survey of quality perceptions among the members of the German association of business professors (VHB). The German-speaking WirtschaftsWoche published the ranking which uses the VHB list.

Regardless of the journal list used, the members of the WHU SCM Group achieved top ranks as shown on the charts.
