On 4 July 2016, the Executive Committee agreed to proceed with the ranking of academic journals publishing history research. Members of the EC have drawn up a document outlining the proposed scope, criteria, categories and process for this undertaking. The AHA invites comments on this document, especially on the criteria for ranking. Please send comments to AHA executive officer by 12 August 2016. In line with the practice adopted by the Australian Council of Business Deans in ranking journals in Business Studies, any submission in response to this proposal or to the draft journal ranking will be made publically available at the completion of the review process. The document can be accessed here.
