    Dear Colleagues,

    We are all receiving emails requesting our support for the inclusion of specific journals on the revised FT50 journal list. Being a resident of Washington, DC, I could not help to notice that this is turning into a familiar all-out lobbying campaign. Editors and professional organizations requesting support for their journals are most certainly NOT to blame-this is the reality we live in. But, frankly, it is sad to see that so much is at stake by a list created by journalists whose interest are not necessarily scientific advancement or impact/application of research.

    The following articles published in the February 2020 issue of Academy of Management Perspectives offer suggestions on how we can do things better:

    I look forward to a vigorous and informative debate on these important issues!

    All the best,
