Abstract

Which journal articles have the most impact on finance research? Which journals dominate finance research in the 1990s? We answer these and similar questions using a comprehensive sample of journals, an extensive time period, and a new ranking method that avoids problems inherent in the existing literature. Among our findings: six of the ten articles most highly cited by finance journals were published in econometrics or economics journals; Journal of Finance has the most citations, but it accounts for only one of the top ten articles; and Journal of Financial Economics has the highest impact per article.

Keywords: Research Impact, Journal Ranking, citations

JEL Classification: G0
