RAE stands out in international indices with increase in Impact Factor
The Impact Factor (IF) of the RAE-Revista de Administração de Empresas (Journal of Business Management) increased in international indices such as JCR, Scopus, SciELO, and Redib. In the Journal Citation Reports (JCR), the increase was over 70% according to the latest rankings released by Clarivate Analytics (June 2019), rising from 0.404 (2017) to 0.701 (2018). The result ranks RAE among the top ten journals in Brazil indexed in the WoS/SSCI database, which brings together periodicals from several areas, such as Biological Sciences, Exact Sciences, and Social Sciences.
Also indexed by Elsevier’s Scopus, RAE’s CiteScore rose from 0.49 in 2017 to 0.80 in 2018. To calculate the CiteScore value, the total citations received in 2018 are considered, being then divided by the number of documents published between 2015 and 2017. In turn, in SciELO, the IF increased from 0.4286 (2017) to 0.6056 (2018), being the highest among Brazilian Business Administration journals. Another important milestone for the journal: since 2017, RAE has exceeded four million annual hits in SciELO, on which it makes available its entire collection. In Redib, the RAE Global Qualifier stands at 26,637, ranking first in the general rankings of Social Sciences, which includes publications from Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Spain, and other countries.
“These results are fruits of the commitment to scientific rigor and relevance of editorial quality that mark the 58-year history of uninterrupted publication of RAE. Since 2018, the journal has published articles in English, with a second version in Portuguese or Spanish, which strengthens its international projection. Additionally, there are continuous efforts to disseminate the journal’s editorial content, such as the calls for papers for special editions, which are planned in partnership with Brazilian and foreign researchers, involving the various continents of the world,” said Professor Maria José Tonelli (FGV EAESP), Editor-in-Chief of RAE.
These advances are coupled with a dissemination effort by RAE in communities such as the Academy of Management (United States), the British Academy of Management (BAM), and the European Academy of Management (EURAM). RAE is also present in the social networks of Fundação Getulio Vargas, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, as well as making the content available free of charge on the RAE-Publicações website and on FGV’s Digital Library.
