Abstract

This article aims at coming up with serious grounds for an evaluation of French research published in scientific journals in the field of Economics. Because the science of Economics lacks maturity, a reliable method is needed. Our method consists in crisscrossing the various databases which play an authoritative part, and in asking the scientific community in France what its position is. Hence the scientificity of a journal: a journal is ?scientific? when considered as such by the scientists of its community. This analysis and the results of a survey (150French and foreign journals and almost 340economists questioned) shed new light on (and refute) some widely held conceptions about the rankings of journals. Full results, for Economics and some other disciplinaries (Law, Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology-Ethnology, Education Science, Information and Communication Sciences) can be available on this site: http://www.iut-tarbes.fr/enquete.
