Eggert, Håkan. 2006. “Fisheries Economics and 20 Years with Marine Resource Economics: A Citation Analysis.” Marine Resource Economics 21:3: 269-284.
This paper reviews the impact of articles published in the Marine Resource Economics (MRE) and within the field of fisheries economics in general over the period 1954–2004. Specific attention is given to the years 1984–2004, which is the period that MRE has been published.
The degree of influence is assessed using citation analysis. I present the most cited papers in MRE, the top ten all time cited fisheries economics papers, and the most cited papers during each decade over the last 30 years. By analysing the trend of recently published papers, I can assess which ones are projected to be most influential.
