ESI: only 15 universities produced at least 1400 papers in the field of Economics and Business over the last 10 years; Erasmus University Rotterdam included

Essential Science Indicators has been updated as of September 1, 2012 to cover a 10-year plus 6-month period, January 1, 2002-June 30, 2012.

The field of economics & Business covers 289 journals in the essential science Indicators of Web of Science.

Only 15 universities produced at least 1400 papers in the field of Economics and Business over the last 10 years; Erasmus University Rotterdam included.

Erasmus University Rotterdam ranks 2nd outside the US next to LSE. This is a major performance for Erasmus University Rotterdam. The citations per paper of the two non-US schools still clearly lacks behind the US schools.

This is why citation impact is the next big excellence frontier for Erasmus University Rotterdam. Far the most research in economics and business is done in the Erasmus School of Economics (ese) and the Rotterdam School of Management (rsm) and their research institutes ERIM and TI.
