Publishing and Measuring Success in Economics

The publication process in economics is characterised by long publication lags and excessive weight given to a very small number of journals, while the profession itself is seen by many as hierarchical, clubby and characterised by gender and racial biases. This eBook takes stock of these issues with a series of short essays focusing on how economists publish their research and measure academic success.
