''Going parochial in the assessment of the Brazilian economics research output''
( 2009, Vol. 29 No.4 )
I evaluate the just launched official criterion for assessing the economics research output in Brazil, called “Qualis”. I compare it with the simple journal impact factors released by RePEc. Four biases are identified: (1) left-wing journals have been favored, (2) mainstream British journals have been downgraded, (3) cross disciplinary research output has been neglected, and (4) domestic journals have been favored.
Keywords: economics research output, journal rankings, Brazilian economics publication
JEL: A1 - General Economics: General
A2 - Economics Education and Teaching of Economics: General
