Ranking Economic History Journals: A Citation-Based Impact-Adjusted Analysis

Gianfranco Di Vaio () and Jacob Weisdorf

No 09-11, Discussion Papers from University of Copenhagen. Department of Economics

Abstract: This study ranks - for the first time - 12 international academic journals that have economic history as their main topic. The ranking is based on data collected for the year 2007. Journals are ranked using standard citation analysis where we adjust for age, size and self-citation of journals. We also compare the leading economic history journals with the leading journals in economics in order to measure the influence on economics of economic history, and vice versa. With a few exceptions, our results confirm the general idea about what economic history journals are the most influential for economic history, and that, although economic history is quite independent from economics as a whole, knowledge exchange between the two fields is indeed going on.
