CFAR Ranking

The Olin Business School CFAR Ranking of financial research was created to provide information about the research output of the different business schools, using the number of articles published in top journals that are relevant to the field reported by Business Source Complete and EconLit. The ranking considers articles published only by finance professors, or non-finance professors who have published at least three papers in the top three finance journals (JF, JFE and RFS).

By default, the ranking sorts universities by average yearly per capita, which uses the total number of full-time faculty at each finance department each year, over the selected period. But it can also be sorted by total outcome. Currently, we document the rankings for 141 universities from 2000 to 2020.
