  1. Economists in Ukraine: who are they and where do they publish? By Maksym Obrizan

  1. By: Maksym Obrizan (Kyiv School of Economics)
    Abstract: This paper analyses 1,672 articles published in English by economists working in Ukraine over 1991-2017 using SCOPUS database and bibliometrix package in R. Between 2011 and 2012 when the number of published papers increased more than ten times with Actual Problems of Economics and Economic Annals-XXI being the two most important outlets accounting for more than 70 percent of all publications. Despite this increased visibility the citation counts show rather modest contribution of economists in Ukraine. Regression analysis of citations indicates that articles with a foreign co-author and Digital Object Identifier are more likely to receive citations.
