CInSt Research Seminar "Leadership in Scholarship: Editors' Influence on the Profession's Narrative": Sergey Popov (Cardiff Business School)
Sergey Popov, Lecturer in Economics, Cardiff Business School, will present his paper "Leadership in Scholarship: Editors' Influence on the Profession's Narrative" on CInSt research seminar on October 31st.
Academic journals disseminate new knowledge, and therefore can influence the direction and composition of ongoing research by choosing what to publish. We study the influence of editors and coeditors of the American Economic Review (AER) on the topic structure of papers published in the AER between 1976 and 2013 using a textual analysis of manuscripts. We compare AER's topic structure to that of the other top general interest journals. The appointment of new AER editors, while accompanied by a minor comovement of AER topics towards topics of editor's post-appointment publications, serves more to premediate trends in the other Top 5 journals.
Date: October 31st, 2019, 6:10-7:30 pm.
