Abstract:

The quality of articles in this issue has provoked a comment on the process by which journals and their content are rated. Evidence from a recent 'Meet the Editors' session at a major international conference suggests this may be a self-fulfilling outcome in which cogito (I think) may have been lost from Descartes original justification for existence and replaced by sum (I am) leaving us with “I am therefore I am”. Without seeking to challenge the quality of articles published in the Category A journals, it is contended that one cannot automatically dismiss work published in non-Category A journals as of lesser worth. Consideration and evaluation of the content of this issue clearly supports this view underlining the need for scholars to look beyond the highest rated journals for original and important contributions to their discipline.
