Abstract:Several publications have appeared in the field of
Operations Management which rank Operations
Management related journals. Several ranking systems
exist for journals based on , for example, perceived
relevance and quality, citation, and author affiliation.
Many academics also publish at conferences but we have
not come across publications that rank conferences.
Conference rankings are generally more complicated than
journal rankings. Journal rankings are primarily for
publishing purposes. Conferences on the other hand are
attended by people for different reasons. In this paper the
first attempt is made in developing an operations
management conference ranking based upon author
affiliation. Ranking based on an analysis of author
affiliation assumes that one important motive for
participants is to attend a high quality research
conference. With that assumption it is reasonable to use
the author affiliation approach. Based upon an existing
ranking of institutes that offer operations management
programs a ranking list of affiliations is developed.
Subsequently, we compare several operations
management related conferences such as POMS,
EurOMA, OSCM and the Operations Management
Division of the Academy of Management based on that
ranked list of institutes. The results provide information
for authors that help in deciding which operations
management oriented conferences to attend.
