Electronic Resources and Heterodox Economics

Fabio D'Orlando

Review of Political Economy, 2013, vol. 25, issue 3, 399-425

Abstract: The idea of measuring scientific relevance by counting citations is gaining influence among economists, and thanks to the electronic bibliographic resources now available the procedure has become relatively simple and fast. However, when it comes to putting the idea into practice many problems emerge. This paper uses four of the principal bibliographic electronic resources (EconLit, JSTOR, Web of Science and Scopus) to test the practical applicability of this method to the case of the five theoretical schools classified as 'Current Heterodox Approaches' in JEL code B5.
