  • Abstract:

    The quality of construction management journals is assessed using a questionnaire survey approach. Construction management is broadly defined to include studies of the human aspects of the construction process. Twenty-two journals related to construction management are identified. Questionnaires were sent to potential respondents by e-mail. Respondents were asked to assess the quality of the journals that they are familiar with. Although there is some evidence showing that respondents who are editorial board members or authors of a journal tend to give a slightly higher score to that journal, the relative ranking of the journals is not affected substantially by such tendency. Some statistically significant results on the ranking of the journals are obtained irrespective of the relatively small sample size compared with some surveys of other main stream journals.
