Abstract

Journal quality is a major consideration for authors, readers, and promotion and tenure committees. Unfortunately, no objective quality measure exists for most behavioral economics and socio-economics journals. To address this need, the number of articles that cited each journal in these fields was recorded for 2001-2005, 1996-2000, and 1996-2005. In all periods the Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization ranked first and the Journal of Economic Psychology second. In 2001-2005 the Journal of Socio-Economics ranked third. Data on abstract views and paper downloads in RePEc also suggests that JEBO ranks first, but JoEP and JSE now rank similarly.

Keywords: Journal rankings, Citation analysis, Behavioral economics, Socio-economics, Economics and psychology
