The research analysed almost 5500 journal articles submitted to the 1996 Research Assessment Exercise by business and management academics, in an attempt to gauge both the effect of the exercise on academic publishing within the field, and the academic community's response to it. It was a retrospective study using published research submitted during the period 1992-1996. Data supplied by HEFCE on journal submissions for the 1996 RAE were used to define the type of journals submitted to, and the breadth of journal titles within the subject area.
