Narong Koojaroenprasit


Studies of the reputation and research productivity of economics departments in the United States have been conducted over four decades. Those study cover three issues: (1) reputation of economics departments, (2) ranking economics journals, and (3) the nature of economics research. The institutional ranking continues to be of interest to students, economics faculty, administrators. and employers for several reasons. Graduate students, newly minted Ph.D.s, and economics professors can use these lists as a guide to selecting an economics department to enhance their future career (Graves, Marchand, and Thompson, 1982). Research productivity information assists university administrators balance the role of teaching, research, and service functions by economics professors. Finally, employers can use the institutional ranking in evaluating job candidates. Hence, the purpose of this study is to rank economics departments based on counting the number of article pages published in the top three economics journals (American Economic Review, Journal of Political Economy, and Econometrica) from 1989 to 1998.
