Some Thoughts on Regional Economics as a Source of Scholarly Contributions
The present study seeks to extend the depth and scope of an earlier study by Isserman (2004). In particular, using Isserman (2004) as a starting point and using more recent data [for the years 2005 through 2009], this study seeks to provide a broader and more in-depth perspective on the role and relative contribution of Regional Economics research to pertinent related scholarly literature as a whole. Interestingly, by taking into consideration the size of a subfield or field in terms of the number of its SSCI-journals, Regional Science journals may well manifest a higher impact than the journals of Economics and Geography. Hence, RSAI journals appear to be contributing quite productively, given the relative size of their field.
