Research Productivity in Business Economics: An Investigation of Austrian, German and Swiss Universities

Oliver Fabel, Miriam Hein and Robert Hofmeister
From the journal German Economic Review


We draw on a new and comprehensive dataset that collects the research output of business economists employed by Austrian, German and Swiss universities. We compute research rankings of departments and identify the leading departments in selected subdisciplines. Moreover, we investigate how institutional design and individual characteristics affect research productivity and draw some conclusions for the training of junior scientists.
