Abstract

This paper measures the publishing activity and the impact of European economists, 1986-1996. The analysis of the number of publications in selected scholarly journals and the citations shows that, relative to population size, the British economists are in the lead. They publish much more than their German, French and Italian colleagues. At the same time, their work seems also to be cited more often. However, compared to the economists from the small western European countries, the British dominance is much less pronounced. The latter seem to be much more focused on the international academic market than scholars from the large continental countries. Copyright Verein fü Socialpolitik und Blackwell Publishers Ltd 2000
