Quantity versus Quality: What’s in a (Journal) Name?

David Giles ()

No 1103, Econometrics Working Papers from Department of Economics, University of Victoria

Abstract: We consider the relationship between the rankings and the title length of 159 academic economics journals. Although there is no significant association between these two metrics for the full sample of data, we find that a significant “bathtub” relationship between journal quality and title length emerges when the data are subjected to a rank correlation analysis over sub-samples.
