1Ibid: Simon School

When it comes to finding academic sources in the literature of finance, Simon School faculty and graduates are among the most often cited in the field.

That's according to a study tracking the frequency of citations during the past 25 years in the Journal of Finance, the Journal of Financial Economics, and the Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis.

The study, conducted by researchers at SUNY-Buffalo and Central Michigan University, found that 21 of the top 100 most cited researchers have Simon connections.

Seven are current faculty, five are former faculty, and nine are former Ph.D. students.

Current faculty in the top 100 are James Brickley, Gleason Professor of Business Administration and professor of economics and management and of finance; Greg Jarrell, professor of finance and economics; G. William Schwert, Distinguished University Professor and professor of finance and statistics; Jay Shanken, Frontier Corporation Professor of Business Administration and professor of finance; Clifford Smith, Jr., Louise and Henry Epstein Professor of Business Administration and professor of finance and economics; Jerold Warner, Fred H. Gowen Professor of Business Administration and professor of finance; and Ross Watts, William H. Meckling Professor of Business Administration and professor of accounting and finance.

The study looked at 134,632 citations in work by 12,637 individual authors who published at least one article in the journals during that time.

The top 1 percent of researchers account for 49,886 of the total number of citations, and the top 10 percent account for 77 percent of the citations, the study notes.
