Abstract  

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.

Abstract  

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 h 1-index by introducing three generalizations, each of which is a rational number. The first (h 1 +) measures the excess over the actual h-index, while the other two (h 1*, h 1 Δ) measures the distance to the next h-index. At the individual level, h* and h Δ coincide while h + is undefined.

Abstract  

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.

Summary  

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.
