The theme of last month’s AACSB International Conference and Annual Meeting (ICAM) – a can’t miss event for Cabells every year – was “Pathways to Impact” and thought leaders and educators from the world of business gathered in Chicago to share the pathways their organizations are taking to positively impact society. We were thrilled to be able to continue our annual tradition of attending and lending our support to AACSB and our shared community.
The fact that so much of our work at Cabells revolves around impact made this year’s event as good a fit as ever. We connect researchers to journals that will help maximize the impact of their work. We also fully embrace the importance of harnessing the power of research to positively impact society, in part by moving from ‘quality’ to ‘impact’ when assessing academic publications. Our work with SJU in developing the SDGII as a tool for measuring and reporting faculty impact on the SDGs through published research has been rewarding and continues to evolve. (News on recent exciting developments soon to come.)
ICAM in Chicago was the second leg of our journey this conference season, the first coming earlier last month when we were excited to find ourselves in Glasgow for the 46th annual United Kingdom Serials Group (UKSG) conference, which was as engaging and exciting as always.
The fun doesn’t end in Glasgow and Chicago for Cabells, we’re looking forward to more adventures throughout the year – keep an eye out for us at:
