correlated with a correlation coefficient of 0.51. Coauthored weighted number of

publications is more weakly correlated with total citations with a correlation coefficient

of 0.34.

Table 6 presents an analysis of citations on a per article basis by author, and includes

total citations (Panel A), insurance citations (Panel B) and noninsurance citations (Panel

C). Joseph Eisenhauer holds first place for total citations per article with 84 citations,

of which 69 are noninsurance, making him the top author based on citations appearing

in noninsurance journals as well. Among the top 10 authors based on total citations

(Table 5, Panel A), only Kevin Dowd and Shaun Wang are among the top 10 when their

total citations are divided by their number of JRIs. Among the top 50, 16 are the same

authors based on both impact metrics. RMI scholars who published in the JRI for the first

time near the end of the publication period in our study (1989–2010) and have a highly

cited JRI article have an opportunity to have his or her emerging impact recognized

by examining citations on a per article basis. For example, Yijia Lin, who published

her first JRI in June 2005, ranks 20th based on citations in insurance journals per JRI

article.

Table 7 provides an analysis of citations adjusted for coauthorship. Eight of the top 10

authors based on total citations before the coauthorship adjustment remain in the top

10, and J. David Cummins retains first place. After the coauthorship adjustment, Scott

Harrington and J. Francis Outreville move into the top 10 for total citations.

As any empirical analysis is limited by the time period used, and considering that the

extent to which a scholar’s academic career overlaps the sample period, our metrics
