Leiden Professors and their fascination; a good example for others

Leiden University has created a wonderful website about the work and fascination of it’s immense intellectual capital over the centuries. All profs in one place. Well done!

This is what I call a valuable nurturing of your intellectual heritage.

Annual Dutch citation-topparade (2000-2004) and tipparade (2004) for economists; not the complete picture

The ESB journal has published it’s list of top economists (esb-economentop_20070405.pdf) again this week. The topparade measures the citation in the Web of science in the period 2000-2004 for articles published in the period 1988-2004. This is a moving time window. The six ‘big’ economics faculties in the Netherlands (EUR, RUG, UM, UvA, UvT, VU) eactable-1-esb-top-30-2007.jpgh submit 20 of their best researchers to the ranking, while the relatively smaller institutes (UU, WUR, DNB, TUD) select each 5 names. The ranking does not cover all of he faculties in the Netherlands, because some choose not to participate and the faculties of management sometimes do not participate. Still the ranking gives an indication of where the best academic research in the Netherlands is done. The ranking also gives an overview of the institutions where the best economists are affiliated. I’m proud to mention that Erasmus University Rotterdam has jumped Tilburg University to the first place in the institutions list this year.
