Analyse comparative de la visibilité des articles en économie industrielle : 1991-1998


  • Mirucki, Jean

    (Université de Valenciennes)


This empirical study evaluates the relative importance of articles in industrial organization published in major general or specialized scientific journals, either English or French, using the new 1991 J.E.L. classification system. Contributions are examined within two recent periods, 1991-1994 and 1995-1998, and regrouped according to the type of article : theoretical (L100-L390); industrial policy (L400-L590); industry studies (L600-L990). A specialization progress indicator (IPS) may show the evolution of the editorial policy in relation with the treatment of the subject, while a rate of multiple reference (TRM) reveals the specific characteristics of the journals with respect to the type of article being published. Cette étude empirique évalue l’importance relative des articles en économie industrielle publiés dans les principales revues scientifiques généralistes ou spécialisées, autant anglophones que francophones, en utilisant le nouveau système de classification du J.E.L. de 1991. Les contributions sont examinées à l’intérieur de deux périodes récentes, 1991-1994 et 1995-1998, et regroupées suivant le type d’article : analyse théorique (L100- L390); politique industrielle (L400-L590); études sectorielles (L600-L990). Un indice de progression vers la spécialisation (IPS) permettrait d’observer l’évolution de la politique éditoriale en rapport avec le thème traité, alors qu’un taux de référence multiple (TRM) révèle les caractéristiques spécifiques aux revues en fonction du type d’article publié.
