Although it is long known that academics must “publish or perish”, there is little information available on actual academic publishing standards. This descriptive study reports the quantity and quality of journal publications of 40 Australian Associate Professors in the field of human resources, industrial relations and organisational behaviour. Analysis of 569 papers indicate those academics have an average 14.23 journal articles, of which 6.2% are in journals ranked A*, 23.4% are in A journals, 26.4% in B, 30.4% are in C ranked journals and 13.4% were in journals not ranked. Findings indicate considerable differences in quantity and quality of journal papers by Associate Professors, with a disproportionate contribution to top ranked journals by Group of Eight academics.
