I'm struck by the fact there are number of academics at Canadian universities on this list of experts.
Anyway, I don't know if the consultation period for the making of this list is still open, but if folks want to make their opinions heard, they should probably speak up before the list is finalised.
Dear Andrew and MH Colleagues,Regarding journal rankings and lists, you may find the following article just published in Academy of Management Perspectives interesting:Aguinis, H., Cummings, C., Ramani, R. S., & Cummings, T. G. 2020. "An A is an A:" The new bottom line for valuing academic research. Academy of Management Perspectives, 34: 135-154. This article is available at https://journals.aom.org/doi/10.5465/amp.2017.0193I hope this helps!All the best,--Herman.

Good question! We offered a VERY brief narrative of the origins in our 2020 Academy of Management Perspectives article as follows: "Beginning in the late 1950s, business schools began the long, arduous transition from vocational-or practitioner-oriented trade schools to research-focused institutions (Bennis & O'Toole, 2005; Gordon & Howell, 1959; McLaren, 2019). Fueled by the demand for more professionally educated managers as well as stinging rebukes of the quality of the research and teaching of their faculty, business schools adopted the scholarly paradigm of the social sciences as their path to legitimacy (Bailey & Ford, 1996; Pfeffer & Fong, 2002). And this approach entailed defining and measuring the value or quality of their research production (Bennis & O'Toole, 2005)" (p. 139).
