The researcher has selected the Leadership and Organisational Development Journal based on the fit of the nature of this study, and the aims and scope of the journal. Concerned with new, effective ways of leading in organisations, the journal also focusses on interdisciplinary concerns of leadership. As is the case of this study, which draws on the theoretical underpinnings of the sociology of work and leadership theories.
Considering journal quality, the Leadership and Organisational Development Journal received a 1-star ranking from the Academic Journal Guide (AJG), and is ranked by ISI and Scopus, receiving a 3.7 CiteScore tracker ranking. It also holds a 2.122 five-year impact factor (at 2019) from Clarivate Analytics. This journal is, however, not DHET and IBSS ranked.
As this study is concerned with the dynamics that exists between two generational cohorts and the strategies millennial leaders utilise to manage these, when leading Generation X, the researcher believes this journal to be the best fit.
