Les revues d'excellence en économie et en gestion. Discordances entre la classification de l'AERES (2008) et les facteurs d'impact par les citations selon les domaines
In 2008, the French universities evaluation agency (aeres) gave its best grade (A+) to 90 reviews in Economics and Management among 684 academic journals. This paper shows that 109 journals among 594 (18%) remaining journals with lower aeres ranking (A, B or C), have larger Social Science Citation Index Impact Factors in 2008 than the journal ranked A+ with the lowest impact factor in their field. According to the impact factors, around a quarter of aeres top journals could be replaced by journals with lower aeres ranking. These discordances are concentrated in nine out of the twenty fields in economics and management defined by the French cnrs. Classification JEL : A140.
