A multitude of journals impact the production and operations management (POM) discipline. POM researchers, practitioners, and students all need objective means of rating these journals' impacts on the field. By applying an established multifaceted citation-based methodology, journals are assigned to categories (elite and major) along each of four dimensions (breadth, consistency, trend, and intensity of recognition) and subsequently organized into distinct tiers of importance to the production and operations management field. The data underlying this study consist of 13,992 periodical citations that appeared in three prominent POM journals over a recent five-year period.
