Journal rankings have been used as a common low-cost management tool by academic institutions to measure research productivity among scholars. In this paper, we extend the work by Lo et al. (2008) that produced rankings of economics journals, departments, and economists based on teaching-focused research productivity. In particular, we update these rankings by using both a more refined ranking method published in Econometrica (Palacios-Huerta and Volij, 2004) and a larger database consisting of 1,172 articles published across 20 economics journals from 1991 to 2011. In addition, we produce a new ranking that provides a list of the top 20 most influential articles in the field of economic education. Our findings should be of interest to university administrators, researchers publishing in the field of economic education and students seeking graduate programs with a research focus in economic education.
