Research Productivity and Impact Hit an All-time High in 2012
AAE faculty published more articles in peer-reviewed economics journals, and emphatically more in higher-ranked journals, than at any time in the past 25 years. AAE research appeared in top-ranked general economics journals including Econometrica, Review of Economics and Statistics, Journal of Economic Perspectives, Economic Theory, and European Economic Review. Faculty also published in the top field journals in more than six subdisciplines, including Journal of Public Economics, Journal of International Economics, Journal of Development Economics, Journal of Law and Economics, Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, and American Journal of Agricultural Economics. Many more papers appeared in other upper-tier field journals.
