Abstract

Journal of Economic Perspectives—Volume 32, Number 1—Winter 2018—Pages 219–220 Using JEP Articles as Course Readings? Tell Us About It! Probably the most common metric for judging the impact of an academic journal on the economic profession is the number of times that articles in that journal are cited.
