Abstract

(VF)Contrairement aux autres champs des sciences humaines et sociales, les normes d’évaluation en gestion, sous l’influence du mainstream économique, conduisent à exclure les formes de production autres que les articles publiés dans les revues « internationales ». L’hypothèse implicite est que ces autres formes de production n’ont pas d’influence scientifique significative. L’objectif de cet article est de tester le bien-fondé de cette hypothèse en analysant la production de l’ensemble des professeurs universitaires en sciences de gestion, sur la base des publications « influentes » ayant obtenu au moins 20 citations dans Google Scholar. Les résultats montrent que les articles « influents » publiés dans les revues internationales ne représentent que 35% des publications influentes et ne recueillent que 40,2% des citations. Ils révèlent également que les livres occupent une part très importante dans la production influente mais que l’influence des différents supports varient sensiblement selon les sous-domaines disciplinaires (finance, marketing, etc.). Au-delà de ces résultats, l’article met en évidence que la production de publications influentes est très concentrée et que seules 76 publications atteignent les 100 citations. Enfin, l’article montre, pour la catégorie des articles, que le standing de la revue appréhendé au travers du h de Hirsch ou de la note attribuée par le Cnrs n’explique que très faiblement le nombre de citations recueillies. Autrement dit, on ne peut appréhender la qualité d’un article à partir de celle de la revue où il a été publié.(VA)Unlike current practice in other fields of the social sciences, standards for the evaluation of management scholars, which are heavily influenced by evaluation practices in mainstream economics, lead to exclude forms of scientific production other than the articles published in international scientific journals. The underlying assumption is that these other forms of production have no significant scientific influence. The aim of this paper is to test the validity of this hypothesis by analyzing the production of all university professors in management science, based on the "influential" publications defined as having obtained at least 20 citations in Google Scholar. The results show that the "influential" articles published in international journals represent only 35% of influential publications and collect only 40.2% of citations. They also show that books represent a very important part in the “influential” production but that the influence of the different media varies widely across sub-disciplinary fields (finance, marketing, etc.). Beyond these results, this article highlights the fact that the production of influential publications is highly concentrated and that only 76 publications obtain at least 100 citations. Finally, this article shows, for the category of “influential” articles, that the standing of the journal apprehended through Hirsch’s h-index or the rating assigned by the CNRS has only weak explanatory power in predicting the number of citations obtained. In other words, we cannot estimate the quality of an article merely based on the quality of the journal where it was published.
