An economics journals' ranking that takes into account the number of pages and co-authors
In this article, I examine whether the academics reward policy must correlate positively with the published number of articles per co-author, number of pages and journals reputation. This is accomplished by estimating a nonlinear model with a panel data from 168 economics journals covered in the ISI-Web of Knowledge database (58 825 articles). The data reinforces the conjecture that published article value is slightly increasing with the number of co-authors and is proportional to the number of pages. The data also suggests that there are four distinct groups related to journal quality that I name A, B+, B and B-.
