Martina Cioni, Giovanni Federico, Michelangelo Vasta

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article deals with the internationalization of Italian economic and business historians. We relay on an extension of a comprehensive database (Cioni, Federico and Vasta, 2020) of all articles (more than 10,000) published in the top-5 economic history and in the top-3 business history journals from their establishment to 2020, focusing on 209 articles published by 147 authors affiliated to Italian institutions. We focus on both the affiliation of the Italian scholars, highlighting their geographical concentration, and the articles’ characteristics (topic, historical periods, geographical area, use of econometrics). Finally, we show the citational success of Italian researchers in comparative terms.
