(VF)Les normes d’évaluation en gestion conduisent de plus en plus à exclure les formes de production autres que les articles publiés dans les revues « internationales ». L’objectif de cet article est de tester le bien-fondé de ces normes en ana- lysant la production de l’ensemble des professeurs universitaires en sciences de gestion, sur la base des publications « influentes » dans Google Scholar. Les articles publiés dans les revues internationales ne représentent que 35 % des publications influentes et ne recueillent que 40,2 % des citations. Les livres con- servent une part très importante et l’influence des différents supports varie sensiblement selon les sous- domaines disciplinaires (finance, marketing, etc.). L’article met aussi en évidence que seules 76 publications atteignent les 100 citations et que le standing de la revue n’explique que très faiblement le nombre de citations recueillies. (VA)Standards for the evaluation of management scholars lead more and more to exclude forms of scientific production other than the articles published in international scientific journals. The aim of this paper is to test the validity of these norms by analyzing the production of all university professors in management science, based on the «influen- tial» publications in Google Scholar. The articles published in internation- al journals represent only 35 % of in- fluential publications and collect only 40.2 % of citations. Books still repre- sent a very important part and the in- fluence of the different media varies widely across sub-disciplinary fields (finance, marketing, etc.). This article also highlights that only 76 publica- tions obtain at least 100 citations and that the standing of the journal has only weak explanatory power in pre- dicting the number of citations ob- tained.
