How Nobel Laureates Would Perform In The Handelsblatt Ranking
AbstractWe compile a ranking of the research output of all Nobel Laureates in economics using the Handelsblatt methodology and compare the outcome to the Handelsblatt ranking of economists in the German-speaking area. Our analysis focuses on whether the overall rating scores of the Nobel Laureates are indicative of their high achievements. We discuss the role of the convexity of the employed journal weights and draw conclusions on the Handelsblatt’s methodology.
