Multivariate Citations Functions and Journal Rankings
Previous citations-based rankings of journals suffer from the lack of a well-specified methodological base. Using an explicit multivariate citations function, the authors produce a single ranking that controls simultaneously for several nonquality related factors that influence citation. As an example of this methodology, they produce a ranking of economics journals that controls for the effects of differences in field size of journals on citations. The authors demonstrate that previous rankings have been biased in favor of journals from larger fields.
