Why Has Critical Commentary Been Curtailed at Top Economics Journals? A Reply to Robert Whaples

Philip Coelho () and James McClure

Econ Journal Watch, 2006, vol. 3, issue 2, 283-291

Abstract: IN OUR ARTICLE WITH FREDERICK DE WORKEN-ELEY III IN THE April 2005 issue of this Journal, we documented the decline in critical commentary (i.e., comments, replies, rejoinders) that occurred between 1963 and 2004 in the top general interest journals in economics. Explaining the decline was not our focus, although we lamented the decline because it makes the journals less valuable as forums for discussion.
