insurance: JRI; JRU; IME; Geneva Review; Geneva Issues; ASTIN Bulletin; and Scandinavian

Actuarial Journal. Noninsurance journals indexed by WOS include journals across a broad

range of academic disciplines, including mathematics, statistics, finance, economics,

accounting, management, psychology, and numerous other areas. Citations not in the

WOS are not counted. Consequently, citations in the JII, JIR, RMIR, and North American

Actuarial Journal, just to name a few insurance and actuarial journals, are not included.

In total, there were 13,921 nonself-citations related to the 1,444 author–articles in our

sample; of these, 7,405 are in the seven insurance journals indexed by WOS, and 6,516

in noninsurance journals indexed by WOS.

EMPIRICAL FINDINGS

Our empirical findings include a variety of simple statistics measuring author publica-

tion (i.e., article) and citation count for the 886 authors in our study. Again, note that the

citations appear in WOS-indexed journals between 1989 and 2014, while the articles are

published between 1989 and 2010. Table 1 presents summary data on JRI publication

counts at the author level. Data in Table 1, Panel A, are not adjusted for coauthorship.

Among the 886 sample authors, 655, or almost 74 percent, published one JRI in the

publication sample period. Three or more articles place one within the top 10 percent

of authors based on publication count with a mere 67 authors among the 886 having

published that many JRIs in the sample period. Five JRIs are necessary to attain the top

5 percent ranking and 10 JRIs to attain the top 1 percent. The average number of JRI

articles per author during the sample period is 1.63, and the maximum is 14.

Note: Ranks are shown in parentheses.

When JRI publications are weighted for coauthorship, the average number of publica-

tions per author is 0.79, and the maximum is 8.17. Table 1, Panel B, presents a frequency

analysis of number of JRI publications adjusted for coauthorship by author. A coau-

thored weighted publication frequency of 5 articles places an author within the top

1 percent. Approximately 5.4 percent of authors have a coauthored weighted publica-

tion frequency of 2 or more. Over 85 percent of authors have a coauthored weighted JRI

publication frequency of 1 or fewer.

Table 2 presents summary statistics on citations related to the 886 sample authors whose

articles appear in the JRI between 1989 and 2010. The average number of (nonself)

citations per author is 15.7, with a minimum of zero and a maximum of 295.12 When

citations are weighted for coauthorship, the average number of citations per author is

7.3, and the maximum is 158. The average number of citations per article (per author)

is 8.7, and the maximum is 84. The average number of insurance citations per author is

4.3, and the average number of noninsurance citations is 4.4 (8.7 average total citations

per author), suggestive of the breadth of impact of the JRI authors. The average number

of citations per year since an author’s first JRI in our sample period is 1.18, and the

maximum is 27.13.

Table 3 provides a citation analysis by author based on total citations in WOS through

2014. Around 8.9 percent or 79 authors had zero citations to their JRI publications in

the sample period (1989–2010 publications; 1989–2014 citations). For an author to be

among the top 10 percent in total citations, she needs 38 citations; the top 5 percent

12 Again, note that all citations referred to in this study are nonself-citations.
