Ranking Journals by Concentration of Author Affiliation: Thirty-Five Years of Finance Research
AbstractThis paper presents a new metric for journal ranking that has the advantage of ranking more journals with a longer time-series at a low cost relative to impact factors and survey-based methods. We simultaneously rank journals and institutions by the degree of concentration of top journal publications among top rated institutions. The resulting rank of journals by concentration is similar to the rank by impact factors, but the concentration rank includes several journals which are not in the Social Science Citation Index. We also examine the index with thirty-five years of finance research, document a strong secular decline for most journals, a widening gap between higher and lower tier journals, and study the impact on journal competition from the Review of Financial Studies.
