Abstract

This article applies an alternative approach to the measurement of scholarly quality, namely the use of TOP-curves, in order to rank journals in the field of environmental and resource economics. This measure summarizes the incidence, intensity, and inequality of these journals' highly cited articles. Moreover, TOP-curves allow analysts to rank journals according to TOP-dominance. The journal ranking based on the TOP-dominance criterion does not match the ranking based on the journals' impact factors. Indeed, TOP-curves provide more detailed information on the relative ranking of journals since they take into account the composition and the distribution of citations within the top group.
