We analyse the Keele list of economics journals, two lists produced in Australia and the Association of Business School (ABS) list. Econometric analysis suggests that all the rankings respond to combinations of bibliometrics, such as ISI's Article Influence and reward older journals. Lists produced by economists tend to reward theoretical journals and a focus on economics, whilst the ABS ranking tends to penalise an economics’ focus. On the basis of the regressions we produce predicted rankings, distinguishing between journals which can be assigned to a specific category, e.g. 4*, and others which could lie in one of two categories.
