Magazines and journals targeted at practicing HR professionals can be great sources of information on current events and issues in workplaces related to OBHR topics.

Finding Top Tier Journals in OBHR

What are the top academic (peer-reviewed) journals in OBHR?

  • One way to determine this is to consult the Journal Citation Reports Library Database, which is produced by the Institute for Scientific Information. JCR journal rankings are frequently used to identify the top journals based on impact factor. OBHR journals are included in the JCR Social Sciences Edition under a number of different subject categories:
    • Industrial Relations & Labor
    • Management.
  • Many of the journals ranked in JCR are indexed in the Web of Science database, which consists of the Science Citation Index, the Social Sciences Citation Index, and the Arts & Humanities Citation Index.
  • Another source for journal rankings is SCR (Scimago Journal and Country Rank). It lets you view journal rankings by subject category, view a variety of indicators (including the SCR rank and H-index) for individual journals, and to compare journals to each other.
