In order to evaluate the relative importance of articles on Industrial Organization published in major generalist or thematic scientific journals, this empirical study has used the 1991 J.E.L. classification system by regrouping contributions according to the type of article: theoretical analysis, industrial policy or industry studies. A rate of multiple reference index (RMR) has been introduced to examine the degree of relation between those three categories and used as a proxy for editorial preferences towards the type of treatment usually expected by the journal. The article contents of nine generalist and five thematic journals are analysed for the two periods: 1991-1995 and 1996-2000.
Keywords: Editorial policy, generalist or thematic journal, journal contents
