Abstract: For three decades the Journal of Economic Education (JEE) has been virtually the sole producer of academic scholarship in the area of economic education. However, with the turn of the 21st century two new journals Journal of Economics and Finance Education (JEFE) and International Review of Economics Education (IREE) appeared on the scene. However, until now there has been no attempt to examine the impact (or lack thereof) of these new journals in terms of the impact of the articles they each published in their early days. This study addresses that gap by comparing the impact of the 2003 through mid-2004 cohort of articles published in the IREE, the JEE and the JEFE. Remarkably, the portion of the articles in the 2003 through mid-2004 cohort published in the IREE are found to have been cited at a rate somewhat similar to that of the portion published in the JEE, though there are multiple grounds for strongly contesting the notion that the IREE has 'caught up' with the JEE. However, since 2003 both the JEE and the IREE have had a significantly greater impact than the JEFE.
