Abstract

Rankings finden als Methode zur Messung und zum Vergleich wissenschaftlicher Forschungsleistungen in der deutschsprachigen BWL vielfältige Beachtung, stoßen aber auch auf Kritik. Auf der Basis des wissenschaftlichen Gesamtwerks aller Mitglieder des Verbands der Hochschullehrer für Betriebswirtschaft (VHB) wird ein zitationsbasiertes Verfahren mit Google Scholar angewandt. Anhand des Datensatzes werden verschiedene bibliometrische Kennzahlen miteinander verglichen und mögliche Einflussfaktoren identifiziert. Dabei wird bestätigt, dass die thematischen Schwerpunkte der Hochschullehrer die Zitationskennzahlen und ihre Rangplätze maßgeblich beeinflussen. -- In German business administration, rankings are noted as methods to measure and compare academic research performance but are also criticised. On the basis of the academic publications of all members of the German Academic Association for Business Research (VHB), a citation based ranking method with Google Scholar is applied. That dataset is used to compare different bibliometric indicators and to identify possible factors of influence. It is confirmed that the research fields of professors have a significant influence on the bibliometric indicators and places in rankings.
