Ranking Agricultural Economics Departments By Ajae Page Counts: A Reappraisal
AbstractAJAE per capita page counts provide one measure of an institution's research strength. In this article we refine Willis et al.'s measure of department size and, based on the refined measure, recomputed departmental rankings for North American institutions. Results indicate that Northeastern United States departments are more widely represented among the top 20 institutions than 20 years ago and that two Canadian institutions-Guelph and British Columbia-rank in the top 12. The median AJAE publication frequency for the top 30 research institutions is about one article per research faculty member every 12 years. The AJAE page-count measure was found to be highly correlated (R2 = 0.82) with citation counts, whether narrowly or broadly defined. Thus, AJAE page counts appear to provide a simple yet valid representation of institutional research productivity.
