Scientific prestige of the Spanish Economic journals. Professors' working habits in the Economics' departments of the public Spanish universities
AbstractThis paper analyzes the data from a questionnaire mailed to professors in the Economics' departments of the Spanish public universities about their working habits as to information sources used and journals where they used to publish. Responses received indicate two main dimensions of journals' reputation: the mean values assigned to journals indicate the intensity of prestige, and the number of respondents who assigned values extent, are considered as an indicator of the extent of the journal's prestige . Differences in evaluation of journals originated by professors who had published in them are considered. Finally, opinions related to several aspects of the scientific evaluation process in general and more specifically to the scientific periodicals evaluation criteria are ennumerated.
