Rankings: Top 10 Economics Institutions in Asia

Rankings: Top 10 Economics Institutions in Asia


Data Source: RePEc, Top 12.5% Asia, as of January 2013

Following our series of posts about the rankings of economics institutions, we decided to have a look at it in a regional context, starting with Asia.  The list presented in this post is based on RePEc data, as it is one of the few rankings available for Economics specifically. Please note that only 887 institutions and 3019 authors, registered with RePEc, were included.

If you are interested in more general rankings of Universities in Asia, it is worth having a look at the Top Asian Universities 2012-2013 by the THE World University Rankings or 2012-2013 Asian University Rankings by QS.

To read about the difference in methodology for all the rankings listed above, see our earlier post University Rankings for Economics and Econ Department Directories.

This ranking is:

“based on a limited sample of the research output in Economics and Finance”

 “based on data about authors who have registered with the RePEc Author Service, institutions listed on EDIRC, bibliographic data collected by RePEc, citation analysis performed by CitEc and popularity data compiled by LogEc”

„The average rank score is determined by taking a harmonic mean of the ranks in each method, except the first one (number of works), the best and the worst rank.“
