Abstract

This article constructs several meta‐indexes of journal rankings from existing journal rankings which all have limited coverage. It is applicable both for researchers in the field of economics and business administration (including their respective subfields) and includes also journals which are published in German. We discuss the relative merits of meta‐indexes based on peer assessment and on citations.
