Abstract

We measure the past production of research articles by current members of European economics institutions. All econlit journals are used, weighted to reflect differences in quality. Both a long (1971-2000) and a short (1996-2000) time period are considered. We also provide production indices that take into account the authors' career length. The total output of each research center is measured as well as its production per member. The focus is on 600 centers from eighteen European countries (EU 14, Israel, Norway, Switzerland, and Turkey). European centers are compared to the top sixty U.S. economics departments. Statistics regarding the concentration of article production across researchers, institutions, and countries are provided, as well as on publication habits. (JEL: A14, L11, R32) Copyright (c) 2003 The European Economic Association.
