The globalization of business and economic activities is expected to increase readership and citation performance for articles with an international focus. This study measures the impact of such articles on rankings and citation scores of thirty-one academic journals in accounting, economics and finance. Sample statistics show that these journals increased their proportion of global articles from a median of 15% in 2001 to a median of 25% in 2008. Two regression models (logistic and OLS) support the increasing role of international articles on journal performance. Both approaches show that improvements in ranking and citation scores were positively affected by global coverage, especially in economics. The results also highlight that two research topics dominate the field of global finance: International Corporate Governance and International Banking.
Existing studies provide numerous journal rankings with little variance in the resulting top ranked publications in accounting, economics, and finance. This study takes into account the global focus and expertise of thirty-one journals in order to analyze whether their international emphasis contributed to their citation performance. Section 2 provides a short literature review of existing techniques used to rank journals in economics, finance and accounting. Section 3 concentrates on descriptive statistics for the full sample of thirty-one journals. New variables and rankings are created in order to measure their international expertise. Section 4 focuses on the sixteen finance journals included in this sample. Section 5 develops the hypotheses tested in this paper. The first model uses logistic regression to test whether ranking improvements can be attributed to a journal's increased global expertise. The second model uses OLS regression to measure the impact of international articles on a journal's current citation score. Regression results are presented in Section 6 and a conclusion is provided in Section 7.

This study provides empirical evidence on the growing impact of international articles in accounting, economics and fi nance. In our sample, the proportion of global articles increased from 14.8% in 2001 to 25% in 2008, with twenty-one journals reporting better citation scores for international (versus non-international) topics. In fact, all top seven journals had a Ratio (de fi ned as their international score divided by their non-international score) greater than one. Logistic regression shows that two variables contribute to ranking improvements: the change in the proportion of international articles and the citation score of these articles. Further, regression analysis provides evidence that global topics generate better journal performance. Citation scores for 2010 were signi fi cantly impacted by an increased number of publications in the fi eld of international economics. Lastly, a more focused examination of the fi eld of fi nance shows that two journals bene fi tted greatly from their emphasis on international topics: the Journal of Banking and Finance , and the Journal of Corporate Finance . This is consistent with current high citation records of two fi nancial topics: International Corporate Governance and International Banking.
