JEEA ATTAINS A RECORD "TOP-JOURNAL" IMPACT FACTOR IN 2013!
The 2-year impact factor 2013 for all papers published in JEEA in the years 2011 and 2012 has attained the historical maximum for JEEA. The impact factor 2013 (for papers published in 2011 and 2012) is 3.36 (in comparison, the impact factor 2012 was 2.05). Today's impact factor of JEEA is close to that of Econometrica (3.50), and higher than that of the American Economic Review (3.31) and the Review of Economic Studies (3.24). It is also higher than that of the Economic Journal (2.59) and the European Economic Review (1.36), and of all major top-field journals in economics (e.g., the American Economic Journals, Journal of Economic Growth, Journal of International Economics, Journal of Development Economics, Journal of Monetary Economics, Journal of Labor Economics, Journal of Public Economics, RAND Journal, Journal of Economic Theory, etc.). As of August 2014, 19 papers published by JEEA in either 2011 or 2012 have attracted over 80 Google Scholar cites, 11 of them scoring 100 Google Scholar cites or more. Based on the immediacy index, which captures the cites in 2013 to article published in 2013, we forecast that the impact factor of JEEA will rise further next year. For instance, as of August 2014, 10 papers published by JEEA in 2013 have attracted over 100 Google Scholar cites.
Publishing a paper in JEEA today is a great investment to promote your research and career. Submit your best work to JEEA!
