20) For purposes of this study, we have done so by giving all pages published in the NZEP the same weighting as that received by Economic Record pages under all weighting schemes.

Tables 5 and 6 present the results using different weights for the NZEP, from 1990 onwards and 1995 onwards, respectively.
In response to comments from the referees and the editor, in the revision, I also considered rankings from subsamples of the publications: the "Core 5", the "Blue Ribbon 8", and the "Core 9" journals plus the NZEP, and broke each subsample into two different periods: 1990-2000 and 1995-2000.
For this reason, in the paper, I used a wide range of different weights for papers published in the NZEP (see Tables 5 and 6, and section 3.
