We propose a new metric and data source to assess journal impact in the field of Economics & Business. The metric â€“ Hirschâ€™s h-index â€“ improves on the traditionally used ISI Journal Impact Factor by providing a more robust and less time-sensitive measure of journal impact.
The data source â€“ Google Scholar â€“ provides a more comprehensive coverage of citations than ISI, including citations in books, conference and working papers and non-ISI indexed journals. A systematic comparison between the Google Scholar h-index and the ISI Journal Impact Factor for a sample of 838 journals in Economics & Business shows that the former provides a more accurate and more comprehensive measure of journal impact.
