We rank finance journals based on citations between 2003 and 2008 and compare those rankings with how they existed approximately 20 years earlier. Outside of the top four finance journals (Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, Review of Financial Studies, and Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis), Financial Management stands out as the highest ranked among journals with a broad editorial mission, while the Journal of Financial Markets, the Journal of Financial Intermediation and the Financial Analysts Journal generated the highest citation impact among finance journals that focus on a narrower set of topics. We also identify the authors and articles cited most frequently and find that approximately one third of the top-ranked authors and articles from twenty years ago still hold that distinction today.
