Twentieth Century Publication Performance in Five Leading Economics Journals, a Comment

John Golden and Fred Carstensen ()

The American Economist, 1995, vol. 39, issue 2, 73-77

Abstract: This paper ranks the top thirty Ph.D.-awarding economics departments (out of a sample of over one hundred) by decade based upon both pages and numbers of articles published in five leading periodicals. These include the American Economic Review, Econometrica, Economic Journal, Journal of Political Economy , and the Quarterly Journal of Economics. Conclusions drawn are that several departments that have not ranked highly in recent publication studies performed strongly before 1950 and the home journal advantage of Chicago and Harvard has eroded over time. Also, only seven institutions appear in all nine publication lists.
