Scientist Rankings in Economics & Business, 1997-2007
The data below were extracted from Thomson Reuters Essential Science IndicatorsSM database. This database, currently covering the period January 1997 to October 2007, surveys only journal articles (original research reports and review articles) indexed by Thomson Reuters. Articles are assigned to a category based on the journals in which they were published and Thomson Reuters’s journal-to-category field definition scheme. Both articles tabulated and citation counts to those articles are for the period indicated. Naturally, scientists publishing large numbers of papers have a greater likelihood of collecting more citations than scientists publishing fewer papers. This ranking is by total citations. For articles with multiple authors, each author receives full, not fractional, citation credit. Another ranking could be based on citations per paper, which reveals weighted impact.

The first four names on the list were frequent co-authors of numerous highly cited papers dealing with law, finance, and governance. Other topics represented in the highly cited papers of the others on the list include theories of growth and development, fair trade, monetary policy and inflation, as well as contracts, strategic management, and knowledge assets. Essential Science Indicators lists authors ranked in the top 1% for a field over a given period, based on total citations. For the current version, 930 authors are listed in the field of economics and business, meaning that a total of approximately 93,000 author records were reviewed to obtain these results.
