INFORMS: All INFORMS journals recognized, rated

INFORMS publishes 13 journals, and all of them are recognized and rated in the latest edition of the Association of Business Schools’ Academic Journal Guide.
While the guide does share ratings from citation counts, it states, “The Guide is distinctive in that, unlike other journal guides, it is not based purely on some weighted average of journal metrics. Rather, the Guide reflects the perceptions of the editors, informed by the scientific committee and by expert peers and scholarly associations with whom they consulted as to the relative standing of journals in each subject area.”
Five INFORMS journals rank as “Journals of Distinction.” These journals are part of a unique club recognized worldwide as exemplar examples of excellence. To make this rating they have to be in the highest category of three out of the five non-university based listings: Financial Times 45, Dallas List, VHB, Australian Deans’ List and CNRS.
