Abstract

In this paper we analyse the research in Economics in Spain during the 1990s considering the contributions of both Spanish and foreign economist who have worked in Spain during that period. To do so, we use different bibliometric indicators in order to elaborate rankings for both institutions and researchers. These rankings can be useful for several potentials users such as: a) Evaluation Agencies and Funding Bodies to help them in grant-allocation decisions; b) Graduate students who whish to choose the right institution to complete their postgraduate education, and c) Young Ph Ds who have entered the academic job market and need information about the research perfomance of different institutions.
