Over 20 faculty members from UD’s Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics had research published in top journals in their respective fields in 2020. This included the top 50 journals used in the Financial Times research rank, journals cited in the UT Dallas Top 100 Business School Research Rankings and journals identified as highly selective “A” journals by the Lerner College’s five academic departments. This list is just one way the Lerner College recognizes and celebrates high-quality scholarship created and published by its faculty.
“It is up to the departments and their faculty to determine the criteria to select those journals using a variety of metrics (including but not limited to impact factors),” Lerner Dean Bruce Weber said. “We ask that the department ‘A’ journal list reflects only the best leading refereed journals in their respective fields and that the departments create these lists to recognize and promote top scholarly research productivity.”

Although some of the journal articles in this list have a 2019 or 2021 date noted, all research listed was originally published in 2020.
