Call for papers: Measuring the Productivity of Economics Departments
The AUCO Czech Economic Review invites submissions for a special issue on the measurement of scientific output of economics departments in European countries. Comparative studies that focus on the Central European region (Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary) are particularly welcome. Studies may be empirical and/or methodological. The issue is tentatively scheduled for publication in the Fall of 2009.
Manuscripts are favored that address the following issues:
- What are the competing ways of assessing the output of economics departments, other research outfits, and their members? What are principled arguments in favor of one or the other?
- More generally, what are desiderata of acceptable assessment instruments in light of criteria such as interdisciplinarity and policy relevance that one often finds in grant competitions of funding agencies?
- How does the output of economics departments in each of the countries considered compare, by established and novel assessment instruments, to those in other European countries?
Proposals for manuscripts (about 150-200 words) ought to be submitted electronically by September 30, 2008, to the special issue editor Andreas Ortmann, CERGE-EI, Prague at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Invited manuscripts will be due in early 2009 and shall go through the usual, albeit somewhat expedited, refereeing process.
