This commentary describes and critiques criteria that, according to results from an Association for Business Communication (ABC) member survey, are having an impact on quality judgments about our journals. ABC members rank the Journal of Business Communication and Business Communication Quarterly, as top research and pedaogical jounals in business/managment communications, a finding corroborated by a larger study of acadmics in business and technical communication. However, the growing importance of citation counts and journal rankings currently disadavantages our journals, presenting us with professional obligation and personal dilemmas in relation to them. The authors' purpose is to raise awareness of the various determinants of perceptions of journal quality, to explore the communal views of ABC members on this issue, and to seek ways of enhancing the value of business/management communication research in the academic marketplace.
