    Researchers are accustomed to choose the beginning of the year as the starting point to filter the recent literatures when they retrieve. This paper considers that the custom described above will lead to the Influential Trap which says that papers published at the year-end are less influential than that published at the beginning of the year. Meanwhile, papers from Economic Research Journal Issue 1 in 2000 to the Issue 12 in 2010 are using for an empirical study. It shows that papers published at the beginning of the year get more download and citations than which published at year-end significantly, even if the chief editor did not arrange to publish the core authors’ papers at the beginning of the year.
