Abstract

In this paper, we apply the Phillips and Sul (2007; 2009) methodology to investigate the convergence pattern of finance journals across thirteen established academic journal lists. The results reveal that the majority of sample journals do converge across the academic lists. The estimated transition paths confirm the empirical analysis, revealing a “focal” point for the research institutions to minimize the discrepancies appeared by the journal lists proliferation.
