Who is who among economists of Central- and Eastern-Europe?

Database of teachers at largest state-owned Faculties of Economics and Business from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia and Slovenia, and their scientific impact measured by Google Scholar, Web of Science and Scopus.

Who is covered?

  • teachers from state colleges
  • three faculties of economics from the largest cities of larger countries; one each from the capital of the smaller states
  • 7 countries: BiH, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, Slovenia
  • 16 faculties: Banja Luka, Belgrade, Koper, Ljubljana, Maribor, Mostar, Niš, Novi Sad, Osijek, Podgorica, Pristina, Rijeka, Sarajevo, Skopje, Split, Zagreb
  • 1400 positions

Where is the data from?

  • from the official websites of Faculties, Google Scholar, Scopus and Web of Science

When was the data downloaded?

  • from 27 May 2020 to 23 June 2020
  • data was taken from the websites in good faith; it is possible that the real situation is different from what is on the Internet

How was the data collected?

  • on web pages where there is aggregate data – simple copy / paste
  • on websites where there is no aggregate data: with web-robots (specialized algorithms for automatic download and processing of data that I made for this purpose specifically)

 What exactly was collected?

A selection of ten scientometrics was extracted for each staff member:

  • from WoS: 1) total number of citations and 2) h-index[1],
  • from Scopus: 3) total number of citations and 4) h-index,
  • from Google Scholar: 5) all-time total of citations, 6) all-time h-index, 7) all-time i10 index, 8) citations since 2015, 9) h-index since 2015, and 10) i10 index since 2015, plus
  • affiliations,
  • research areas.


…why not? 🙂 Because I find it interesting.
Ok, really, the data can be valuable to:

  • teachers themselves in search for colleagues in their field,
  • editors of journals when seeking reviewers,
  • organizers of scientific conferences,
  • journalists looking for expert opinions,
  • policy makers when deciding on academic promotion requirements,
  • faculty and/or university management in scrutinizing inter-institutional development, mobility, scientific progress, project funding, cooperation and rewarding,
  • industry servicing scientific community (e.g. in devising rankings, accreditations, etc.) and
  • other stakeholders.
