Spears logoOklahoma State University’s Department of Economics and Legal Studies in Business is one of the best in the world in rankings recently published by Research Papers in Economics.

The Economics and Legal Studies program is among the top 10 percent of economic institutions worldwide in the rankings released in February by Research Papers in Economics (RePEc), an economics research-indexing network.

“This is a nice recognition that reflects the high quality and breadth of research being done by our faculty,” said Lee Adkins, head of the Department of Economics and Legal Studies in Business. “Our faculty publish their research in leading economics journals and receive high readership and citation rates, all of which increase our impact as captured by RePEc.”

The ranking, according to the RePEc website, is based on 6,796 institutions from across the world. They are computed using 31 different rankings, according to 31 different criteria, and then aggregated using a harmonic mean of the rank orders.
