MIS Journal Rankings

This page provides information about the rankings of MIS journals, which may prove helpful to you in preparing promotion and/or tenure packets. In addition to the standard question of "how many", there is hopefully some concern at your university about "how good" your publications are. Since tenure and promotion are evaluated by professionals in disciplines other than yours, the rankings of journals in your discipline often serve as surrogate measures of quality. If you have published in top-ranked journals, be sure to highlight the ranking of those journals in your promotion and tenure packets.
