Journal Ranking for the Ambitious Economist (ICPSR 26181)
Principal Investigator(s): Engemann, Kristie M., Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis; Wall, Howard J., Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis
The authors devise an "ambition-adjusted" journal ranking based on citations from a short list of top general-interest journals in economics. Underlying this ranking is the notion that an ambitious economist wishes to be acknowledged not only in the highest reaches of the profession, but also outside his or her subfield. In addition to the conceptual advantages that they find in their ambition adjustment, they see two main practical advantages: greater transparency and a consistent treatment of subfields. They compare their 2008 ranking based on citations from 2001 to 2007 with a ranking for 2002 based on citations from 1995 to 2001.
