On another note, the RePC rankings of scientific journals by citation impact was recently made available.The RAE has a long way to go to improve in its ranking (355), but there was some surprising comparisons. The RAE actually ranks higher than the Journal of Economic History (401), AJE&S (544), Review of Social Economy (420), etc. None of the history of thought journals have much of a citation impact, though the Journal of Economic Methodology (248) does better. The RAE is the only journal within the Austrian school that makes the list.
A close look at the top 100 journals listed is revealing. A look at the next 100 is an interesting window into the slightly out of sync cutting edge of economics.
We do really have to do a lot better, but we are moving up.
