Abstract

This article investigates citations metrics as an institutional phenomenon from two perspectives: first it tries to articulate the role of citation metrics within a Gramscian framework; second it compares citation patterns from orthodox and heterodox economic journals to gain insights on the current economic discourse. Complementary to this general question the role of the Review of Radical Political Economics within citation metrics will be discussed.
