Sendo que há necessidade de conhecer a qualidade relativa das “revistas internacionais com avaliação” especializadas em economia regional e urbana, na literatura não existe tal listagem. Para colmatar esta lacuna, apresentamos neste trabalho uma hierarquização e uma classificação das 39 revistas cobertas pela base de dados bibliográfica ISI Web of Knowledge que têm no nome a palavra “Regional” ou “Urban” ou que pertencem a “Urban Studies”. Concluímos que a revista Journal of Urban Economics é a que tem maior índice de qualidade (0.058) que, apesar de ser relativamente muito elevado, é bastante menor que o índice de qualidade das revistas generalistas de topo que publicam artigos nesta área, i.e. a American Economic Review (0.194), a Econometrica (0.169) e o Journal of Business and Economic Statistics (0.118).
