    Abstract

    The article contributes to the growing body of literature dealing with the bibliometric evaluation of the Czech economic research. In particular, this article introduces a recently invented measure of both the scientific output and impact - the Hirsch index (h) - into the Czech academic economics. While the theoretical part of the article contains a discussion of the strenghts and weaknesses of the Hirsch approach, the empirical part presents two original top50s of the Czech economists ranked by their individual h´s. The first of our charts comes from the Web of Science´s General Search dataset, and the second one reflects the use of the Web of Science´s Cited Reference Search dataset. Both datasets cover the 1980-2006 period. It appears that the rate of correspondence among the top 25 economists in each chart and the top25 of the celebrated Turnovec´s citation-based ranking (2005) amounts to 60%. In addition, our empirical results reveal that the elite Czech economists attain h´s being 3-10 times lower than the h´s of the foreign academic "superstars".
