Chapter 1 in A Century of American Economic Review: Insights on Critical Factors in Journal Publishing, 2013, pp 1-11 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract Using information collected from American Economic Review publications of the last 100 years, we provide answers to the following questions: Which are the top publishing institutions and countries? Which are the top papers based on citation success? How equally is citation success distributed? Who are the top publishing authors? What is the level of cooperation among authors? What drives the alphabetical name ordering? What are the individual characteristics of the authors, editors, editorial board members, and referees? How frequently do women publish? What is the relation between academic age and publication performance? What influences the technical level of articles? Do connections have an influence on citation success? Can awards increase the probability of publishing at a later stage?
