Prof. Wan made a presentation about the overall development of JMA and thanked Mr. Ivanov for his support to this meeting. Then, Mr. Ivanov delivered a speech and welcomed the SJTU delegation. He also introduced the situation of the IAE and looked forward to opportunities for further cooperation and exchanges in the future.

Teacher Liang Xueling made a report on the annual work of JMA and reviewed the work since the journal was launched. After more than five years of sound development, JMA has become a journal with an increasingly great influence. Its papers have been cited by more than 100 SSCI/SCI/ESCI journals, including the top journal MIS Quarterly. It has a diversified distribution of authors who come from more than 30 countries and regions. The editorial board consists of well-known scholars from 14 countries and regions. JMA has been included in nine important databases such as Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) and Scopus. In the 2018 Scopus CiteScore ranking, JMA scored 94 points and ranked 11th out of 206 journals. The rapid development of JMA benefits from the support of the school, the precise positioning and the global strategy of the journal, and the joint efforts of the professional and efficient editorial team.

As a member of the editorial board of JMA’s special issue, Prof. Zhang Pengzhu briefed the organization and preparation of the 2019 International Seminar on Artificial Intelligence, which was co-hosted by ACEM and Yokohama National University. At the seminar, editors discussed issues including the status quo, trends and goals of JMA, the road to a double-class journal, and the organization of next year’s editorial board meetings and workshops.

In closing, Prof. Li Yuan and Prof. Xu Lida wrapped up the meeting with arrangements for the key tasks in the upcoming year.

Each year, JMA partners with a selection of world-class business schools or research institutes to hold its editorial board meetings and international seminars, in order to enhance its academic influence and international reputation. JMA is committed to becoming an international academic journal with significant influence in the management field.

During the visit, the SJTU delegation also visited Moscow State University of Transport. The Vice-Chancellor of the university warmly received us and shared with us their development history and famous alumni. Prof. Wan Guohua introduced the development of our college, including teaching, research and international rankings. The two sides expressed expectations on more opportunities for further cooperation and exchanges.
