Excellent news about one of my 2005 JEEM papers. Does this reveal that applied economics papers are more heavily cited than theory papers (of which there are a lot in JEEM) and in turn what does this mean? Does this infer that they have a larger impact? What does impact really mean? Given the period is from 2005-2009 this must give a large advantage to 2005 papers :-)
The certificate will take pride of place on my office wall. Now I need to try to write the elusive third JEEM paper. Not an easy task.
