Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to emphasize the central role of international high-quality journal articles in the subject area of business, management, and accounting (BMA) in the scientific community as part of the debate on the interpretation of researcher excellence. The authors believe that international journal articles are essential for the development of their field, successful contributions to international research, and the visibility of their scientific results. Moreover, there is also a policy need for funding to be given primarily to researchers who are expected to advance the discipline globally. In the present study, the authors present a possible motivational tool – the tudomanymetria.com project – in the evaluation of researchers’ excellence of publication activities. They also examine the characteristics of the field and researchers’ ages and discuss the reasons for the most important aspects of change for BMA.
