An analysis of the research productivity of authors appearing in financial education journals


  • Morris G. Danielson
  • Jean L. Heck


Purpose - This paper seeks to evaluate the research records of scholars contributing articles to the two premier financial education journals – Design/methodology/approach - The names of all authors appearing in the Findings - The majority of the authors appearing in the two education journals have also penned one or more high-impact article, with an average of over three high-impact appearances. Research limitations/implications - The identification of a unique set of the 23 “best” journals in any academic field is an inherently subjective task. The exclusion of additional high-quality journals from this list (especially those from the related fields of accounting and economics) might short change the research records of some education authors. Originality/value - Evidence about the average quality of articles appearing in education journals could be useful to university administrators when evaluating faculty research records for purposes of tenure, promotion, and merit awards.
