This essay is a critical review of the journal named Experts’ Judgments of Management Journal Quality: An Identity Concerns Model (Peters, Daniels, Hodgkinson & Haslam, 2012). This article mainly develops an identity concerns model (ICM) with the approach of literature review which suggests that such judgments are likely to be shaped by the personal and social identities of evaluators (Kim, Kevin, Gerard & Alexander, 2012). ICM model is for protecting against personal identity threat or a meaningful opportunity to promote social identity. The article built several hypotheses. Then, the authors use the approach of data collection such as questionnaires and analysis to verify the accuracy and practicability of the model. Summary
The journal evaluators’ judgments are an important aspect when scholars choose journals. The authors suspect that the evaluators’ identities and favors will influence their judgments to the articles. Such judgments are usually not equitable. Thus, this journal is for verifying the hypothesis. The ICM model should be suitable for testing the evaluations of journals. The evaluation of a journal is not simple, both the journals included in various MOS lists and their attendant quality ratings are highly variable and strongly contested (Lewis, 2008). The background characteristics of evaluators play an important role in determining ratings of journal quality (Judge, 2003). In this condition, this journal makes a great sense to reputations of the journals. Therefore, based on the analyses of self-reported limitations and future research directions, the authors offer 168 editorial board members rated 44 MOS journals. This article contributes the ICM model of journal quality evaluation. The ICM model
