At Huizenga College of Business & Entrepreneurship, our commitment to scholarly excellence is evident in our quality standards for research publication. Our Research and Scholarship Committee (RSC) evaluates publications for inclusion in our Journal Quality List (JQL). The JQL is comprised of journals on the Harzing List and its various sublists, including the ABDC Journal Quality List, and journals approved by the Huizenga Research and Scholarship Committee.
The College only recognizes publications in journals appearing on our JQL for purposes of faculty reappointment and promotion. Faculty may petition to add a journal to the JQL by submitting a request through the JQL Submission Form. Once a petition is submitted, the RSC will convene to review and vote on the petition, according to our established quality criteria adopted by the faculty (and described in Appendices A-E in the HCBE Faculty Handbook). The list is updated when new journals are approved for addition to our JQL.
Currently, these journals are RSC-approved for inclusion on our Journal Quality List.
