AABRI Mission - |
The mission of the Academic and Business Research Institute (AABRI) is to provide a quality research publication venue for academic authors from colleges and universities whose primary focus is teaching. AABRI editorial staff and reviewers will work with authors to develop and improve submissions, providing constructive commentary and evaluation to improve the submission and the author's writing capabilities.
A Message from the Publisher - |
We at AABRI recognize that many universities use Cabell's as a standard for publication acceptance towards academic qualifications requirements. All AABRI journals were in the Cabell's directory since they were first published until last December.
In December 2014, Cabellís launched a reevaluation initiative whereby journals appearing in the Directories are being examined according to new, more stringent criteria on a rotating basis throughout the year. All journals are being removed from the database (without notice and prior to reevaluation) as Cabellís undergoes this reevaluation process. The initial application of this initiative affected primarily online, for-profit journal publishers including AABRI journals and hundreds of others. Each journalís editor or publisher is being asked to complete a new Application for Inclusion. Cabell's Journal Admissions Department will verify that all journals reapplying for inclusion meet the revised criteria. According to Cabell's, this comprehensive reevaluation process is expected to be completed by the end of 2015. AABRI is currently evaluating our policies and procedures against the new Cabell's requirements to determine what changes, if any, are necessary to conform to the new requirements. Once this is completed, we will be resubmitting the Application for Inclusion for each of our journals.
While it is unfortunate that Cabell's chose to remove journals from the list prior to reevaluation, we are encouraged by their efforts to standardize and enhance their listing requirements. AABRI will work with Cabell's to ensure relisting of our journals.
Dr. Russell Baker
Cabell's update - May, 2015
AABRI has submitted two of the journals for re-inclusion in the Cabell's Directory of Publishing Opportunities. The journals are the Research in Business and Economics Journal and the Research in Higher Education Journal (one business and one education). Starting the reapplication process with two of the 12 active AABRI journals provides us the opportunity to evaluate and correct deficiencies identified by Cabell's (if any) prior to submitting the balance of our journals for review. Cabell's website states that they anticipate completing the reevaluation process by the end of 2015. Consequently, we are unable to predict when we will receive a response to the reapplications. We will keep our readers and authors posted as the process proceeds.
Cabell's update - August, 2015
Cabell's was called to verify that they have received the above submissions for re-inclusion. The person I spoke to told me he did not have those records and that they had many reviews in process and could not estimate when they may be completed. After discussing it with several advisory-board members we decided to proceed with submission of all the journals for re-includion into Cabell's. This was done both electronically and via registered mail (to verify receipt) on August 24, 2015.
Cabell's update - January, 2016
The following email was received from Cabell's in response to an update request I sent on January 5:
Dear Dr. Baker,
The two journals she is referring to are the Research in Higher education Journal and the Research in Business and Economics Journal, both of which were submitted for review in May 2015 (see above). The balance of our journals were submitted in August. Obviously the process is taking significantly longer than Cabell's original estimate. Once we have an answer on the status of the two journals currently in the que it will be posted here.
The applications for your two journals are in the review boardís queue. Due to the sheer number of applications we receive throughout the year and the time it takes to do a thorough assessment of each journal, this process can be quite lengthy. We will, however, contact you when the assessment is completed and a decision has been made. If your journals are selected for inclusion, we will begin the next step of the inclusion process at that time.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or corrections you may have during this process.
