Determinants of Citations to the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association Journals
This paper investigates citations to articles published in the Review of Agricultural Economics and in the American Journal of Agricultural Economics to better understand the impact of articles published in these journals and to evaluate recent policy decisions made by the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association. The biggest factors affecting non-self citations are self-citations and whether the article received at least one citation in the year after publication, suggesting that "advertising" and "signaling" play important roles in the extent to which a paper is cited. Principal papers and comments/replies are associated with significantly fewer citations for both journals. Copyright 2009 Agricultural and Applied Economics Association
