The State of Environmental and Resource Economics: A Google Scholar Perspective
Until recently, ISI Thompson's Web of Science-Social Sciences Citation Index was the only rigorous tool for tracking citation counts of academic research papers. The recent emergence of Google Scholar provides an alternative measure for tracking citation counts for refereed journal articles, conference proceedings, working papers, and government reports. This article provides an overview of the state of environmental and resource economics using the Google Scholar measure of citations. It ranks and compares the major field journals, and the most cited papers in these journals, the most cited papers in the field that have been published in general economics journals, and the most cited technical books and textbooks, as well as the most cited researchers in the field.
