Abstract

In this paper, we rank agricultural economics departments in Canada on the basis of research output as measured by citations, publications, and publications weighted by journal impact factors. The data we employ are from the ISI Web of Science and cover the period 2000–07. In this ranking we include three departments from the United States to assess the performance of Canadian institutions relative to U.S. departments. We also investigate how publication output is affected by academic rank. Several Canadian departments compare favorably to some of the U.S. departments. Dans cet article, nous classant les départements d’économie agricole au Canada sur la base du nombre de citations, de publications et de publications pondéré par les coefficients d’impact des revues scientifiques. Les données sont disponibles à partir de ISI Web of Science® et couvrent la période 2000–07. Dans ce classement, nous incluant trois départements des Etats‐Unis pour évaluer la performance des départements Canadiens par rapport à ceux‐ci. Nous examinons aussi l’effet du rang académique sur les publications. Plusieurs départements Canadiens sont très comparables à quelques départements des Etats‐Unis.
