This paper provides, for the first time, a comprehensive analysis of the journal article output of Irish-based economists over a 30-year period. Using EconLit data, and supplementing where necessary, we provide details of the journals wherein Irish-based economists have published. We also provide details of the publishing histories of high volume publishers and discuss the evolving productivity profile of Irish-based economists. Data are in general consistent with existing research on the output of smaller national based sets of economists. We find evidence that the productivity of a small number of high volume producers and institutions is a substantial driver of overall national outputs. Evidence is inferred of the impact of productivity on career paths, and we examine details of the split between domestic and interantionally originated journals.
Our evidence shows that in general Irish-based economists have greatly increased the levels of output in the 1990's, but that this may have been at the expense of quality
