Economics Research in Portugal:
The motivation to make available the ranking of economic institutions
and researchers is to contribute to greater transparency in our academic
field of work. It also envisages to stimulate the quality of the
Portuguese researchers' scientific production.
People and Institutions
We are well aware that the scientific production published in
international journals is only a partial portray of all research done in
Economics. Ideally, the quality of research should be evaluated by its
contribution to economic development.
The ranking of researchers and institutions we offer follows other
similar international work and the results it produces are supported in
hypotheses which are detailed in the specific rankings used. The
informational potential and limitations of the ranking results are
strictly related to those working hypotheses and should be interpreted
accordingly. Further details are discussed in the FAQ link.
