Un panorama de la recherche française en économie comparant les approches Google Scholar et Econlit
AbstractWe use the 2010 Google Scholar citations of academic economists working in France in 2008 to draw a panorama of research in economics in France. This allows us to test whether using a broader support than Econlit publication records changes the assessment of research productivity. We compare different citation indexes, as the number of citations per author, the H-index or the G-index, which we calculate at the individual and at the department levels, with some Econlit publication scores. The latter take more or less into account the quality of journals and the analysis is performed for several time periods. The hierarchy of universities obtained through Google Scholar citation indexes is relatively close to that observed when using Econlit publication scores. However we also observe some dramatic changes for a couple of universities, positive mainly when economics is not the research core of these institutions.
