RePEc, sponsored by the Research Division of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, is a comprehensive database of research papers in economics. The information in the database is used to rank the research productivity of registered authors based on a variety of metrics. Authors’ rankings, in turn, are used to rank the institutions with which they are affiliated for academic departments of both economics and agricultural economics.
By field of specialization, a ranking by econphd.net places our department 4th in the “subdiscipline” of Resource and Agricultural Economics. This subdiscipline is further partitioned according to JEL descriptors into two parts: Resource and Environmental Economics, in which we rank 8th; and Agricultural Economics, in which we rank 1st overall.
