(14) Se debe tener en cuenta que el JOF inicia su publicacion en 1946, el JFQA en 1966 y JFE en 1973.
(36) Actualmente varias universidades en Colombia tienen una suscripcion completa a la base de datos electronica http://www.jstor.org, adicional a esto, las bibliotecas universitarias deberian inscribirse a los tres o cuatro journal mas importantes en el campo financiero (JOF, JFE, JFQA y RFS) para los ultimos cinco anos para asi obtener la informacion de frontera sin demora (refierase al "moving wall" de la base http://www.jstor.org en la pagina 4).
We then identify two sets of prolific authors: 1) individuals with five or more career publications across all 23 journals and 2) scholars with five or more career publications in the set of five elite finance journals (JF, JFE, RFS, JFQA, and JB).
Excluding the JB, which published its last issue in 2006, and averaging the results from the two sets of prolific authors, the 10 highest ranked finance outlets now include the four surviving elite journals (in order, RFS, JF, JFE, and JFQA) followed by FM, the JFM, the FAJ, the JCF, the JACF, and the JFI.
Although similar arguments could be made for excluding the JBF, the results in Alexander and Mabry (1994) reveal that articles published in the JBF are more likely to be cited in the JF, the JFE, the RFS, and the JFQA than are articles in the JMCB, the JME, and the JIMF.
More specifically, the top 10 journal index (TlOIndex_C) using faculty perception is computed as JF x 1.00 + JFE x 0.86 + RFS x 0.79 + JFQA x 0.65 + JB x 0.56 + JBF x 0.36 + FM x 0.31 + FAJ x 0.23 + JCF x 0.17 + JFI x 0.17.
The top four finance journals include JF, JFE, RFS, and JFQA. HSCHOOL A weighted annual average number of publications in the top four finance journals of the hiring school(s) where a doctoral graduate worked during the first six years following graduation.
Alexander and Mabry (1994) use citations in the four leading finance journals (JF, JFE, JFQA and RFS) from January 1987 to March 1991 to rank journals.
Arnold, Butler, Crack, and Altintig (2003) rank finance journals according to number of citations in JF, JFE, RFS, JB, JFQA, and FM during 1990-1999.
(2001) show that the number of citations for articles cited in JF, JFE, and JFQA between 1974 and 1998 increases sharply during the first three years after publication, reaches a peak during the fourth year, and then declines gradually after that.
In an earlier study, Alexander and Mabry (1994) use citations in the four leading finance journals (i.e., JF, JFE, JFQA, and RFS) to identify the most cited authors.
In Sections I and II, the data and the list of individuals and articles that were most frequently cited in the JF, JFE, and JFQA during the 25-year period are described.
