In this paper we provide an objective ranking of top economicsdepartments in the European Union (EU) and an assessment of how EU departments compare to the top economicsdepartments in the United States
The first part of the paper gives a brief account of studies on research productivity in economics departments in the Federal Republic of Germany which were published mainly in the second half of the 1980s. In the second part the results of a recent study on rankings of economics departments at universities in the FRG are presented. The paper claims that ranking studies should include a large variety of performance indicators (quantitative and qualitative) and should always take into account the content and context of research productivity.
, before providing a more formal exposition. Finally, we provide two examples: the first examines the influence of the economicsdepartments ranked among the top-10 by REPEC; and the second examines the influence of the top-10 economics journals in Engemann
We rank economics departments in the Republic of Ireland according to the number of publications, number of citations, and
successive h-index of research-active staff. We increase the discriminatory power of the h1-index by introducing three generalizations, each of which is a rational number. The first (h1+) measures the excess over the actual h-index, while the other two (h1*, h1Δ) measures the distance to the next h-index. At the individual level, h* and hΔ coincide while h+ is undefined.
One of the more important measures of a scholar’s research impact is the number of times that the scholar’s work is cited
by other researchers as a source of knowledge. This paper conducts a first of its kind examination on Israel’s academic economists
and economics departments, ranking them according to the number of citations on their work. It also provides a vista into
one of the primary reasons given by junior Israeli economists for an unparalleled brain drain from the country—discrepancies
between research impact and promotion. The type of examination carried out in this paper can now be easily replicated in other
fields and in other countries utilizing freely available citations data and compilation software that have been made readily
accessible in recent years.

This study documents a decade of mainstream research output by European economics institutions. In contrast to previous European
economics departmental rankings, we investigate the changing pattern of the ranking over two subperiods and a total decade.
The validity of our bibliometric approach is demonstrated by a comparison with gradings of UK economic departments in the
2001 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE). We also provide some explanation of the ranking based on regional factors and institutional
features. Strong evidence for the 'institutional oligopoly' of editors and authors hypothesis is found. However, in a dynamic
context this departmental concentration of authorship and editorial board membership does not represent a 'closed shop'. We
find several departments entering the centre stage of economic mainstream for the first time towards the end of the 1990s.
