American Economic Journal: Macroeconomics: Rankings
AEJ Macroeconomics ranks among the top ten economics journals according to the IDEAS/RePEc citation-based discounted impact factors.
The tables below reproduce citation-based journal impact factors and rankings reported by IDEAS/RePEc at http://ideas.repec.org/top/top.journals.rdiscount.html. The impact factor calculations rely on the Citations in Economics project (http://citec.repec.org/) and are updated daily.
The Simple Impact Factor reported by IDEAS/RePEc is the number of citations per item in the series. The tables below show the Discounted Simple Impact Factor and the Discounted Recursive Impact Factor. The discounted factors involve a simple adjustment for article age and are more suitable than the undiscounted factors for evaluating the citation experience of a young journal. Specifically, each citation is divided by article age in years (1 for the current year). For example, in 2007, a citation from an article in 2004 counts for 0.25. The recursive impact factor involves a further weighting by the impact factors of the citing items.
Last year (as of December 23, 2011), AEJ Macro ranked #6 by the Discounted Simple Impact Factor and #5 according to the Recursive Discounted Impact Factor.
Currently (as of February 4, 2013), AEJ Macro ranks #9 according to the Discount Simple Impact Factor and #5 according to the Recursive Impact Factor. See below for a list of the top 15 journals according to the discounted impact factors and for selected other journals.
