This note constructs a new ranking of economics departments that employs a measure of teaching-focused research productivity, an area of growing importance in recent years. The ranking methodology presented here aggregates and orders citations to an institution's research output that is published in the Journal of Economic Education, the leading journal in economic education. Among the top 40 institutions using this approach are Vanderbilt and Indiana, two universities that often rank high using quality indices of more traditional forms of economics research. Others that rank high here, such as Denison and Occidental College, do not often fare as well using methodologies that evaluate more traditional types of economics research.
