The RePEc rankings are based on data about authors who have registered with the RePEc Author Service, institutions listed on EDIRC, bibliographic data collected by RePEc, citation analysis performed by CitEc and popularity data compiled by LogEc.

RePEc is a collaborative effort of hundreds of volunteers in 75 countries to enhance the dissemination of research in economics and related sciences. The heart of the project is a decentralised bibliographic database of working papers, journal articles, books, book chapters and software components, all maintained by volunteers. The collected data is then used in various services. So far, over 1 400 archives from 75 countries have contributed about 1,2 million research pieces from 1 500 journals and 3 300 working paper series. Over 30 000 authors have registered and 70 000 email subscriptions are served every week.
