HSE’s Ranking in SSRN: May 2012

The Social Science Research Network has published its university rankings for May.

Currently the Higher School of Economics is in 7th position based on the number of authors and 11th in terms of the number of new papers published on the Social Science Research Network (SSRN) website. In addition to this, the HSE is among the top 100 universities based on the number of papers downloaded during the last 12 months. The improvement of this indicator demonstrates the growing interest in the academic research conducted at the HSE. This is also reflected in the number of citations of HSE authors, with the HSE climbing the rankings in this field, going from 330th position to 197th since the beginning of 2012.

The ranking of HSE authors in the SSRN has also been updated. This month the top ten authors by the number of new papers have included Igor Gurkov, Anatoly Nesterov and Irina Soboleva. The most read and cited HSE authors still include Dean Fantazzini, Olga Lazareva, Timothy Frye, Vladimir Gimpelson and Andrei Vernikov. Olga Lazareva maintains first position among HSE Russian research fellows in the number of downloads and citations.

The working paper by Egor Lazarev, Anton Sobolev and Irina Soboleva, Trial by Fire: a Natural Disaster’s Impact on Attitudes toward the Government in Rural Russia, has climbed to 1st place in terms of the number of views among all HSE programme of fundamental studies working papers published on the SSRN.
