Who Cites What?
PhD students have the talent and incentives to identify important, emerging areas in their research. As many of these students will go on to academic careers, this paper uses the citations patterns embodied in their research as a possible leading indicator of what the future may hold in economics and business. We identify areas, articles and authors that PhD students judge to be important and analyse intriguing empirical regularities regarding the citation of Australian publications, reciprocal citations among institutions, the link between institutional size and citations, and the age of publications when cited.
