School of Economics and Finance

In April 2008, the Australian Business Deans Council (ABDC) created a ranking of 2,498 business (and business-related) journals. The ABDC classified 38 Economics journals, and seven Finance journals, as being A*.

An A* journal is defined by the ABDC as being “Best or leading journal in its field - publishes outstanding, original and rigorous research that will shape the field. Acceptance rates are typically low and the editorial board is dominated by leading scholars in the field or subfield, including from top institutions in the world. Where relevant to the field or subfield, the journal has the highest impact factors or other indices of high reputation.”
