Most Cited Articles Published in Brazilian Journals of Economics: Google Scholar Rankings


  • João Ricardo Faria

    (University College, University of Texas at El Paso, USA)


This paper examines the rankings of the most cited papers published in Brazilian journals of economics since 1990, according to Google Scholar [GS]. Quality research published in Brazil, as measured by academic impact, is mainly done by authors affiliated with international institutions. Half of the articles are co-authored, 7% are authored by graduate students, and women appear to be underrepresented. There is little overlap between authors publishing in domestic journals and authors publishing in international journals. The areas of research more frequently cited by GS and domestic journals are macroeconomics, labor economics, and industrial organization. The most cited articles in international journals are of econometrics, game theory, and development economics. Revista de Economia Política is the top Brazilian journal for the general public, and Revista de Econometria is the top Brazilian journal for academia. GS citations are not a good indicator of journal citations
