Abstract

The Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Economics (JOBEE) celebrates its 50th year in 2021. To commemorate its 50th anniversary, this study presents a retrospect on the journal's journey since it began publishing in 1972. We find that the journal has since grown in terms of both the number of annual articles and citations. The contribution base of the journal is primarily from the United States and Europe. Collaboration and the use of experimental research have become more prevalent in the journal over the years. Regression analysis shows that the drivers for citations include article age, research type, article length, belonging to a special issue, article order in the issue, number of authors, involvement of European authors as lead authors, number of references, and number of keywords. Variables that are analyzed but do not affect citations are whether the article is a lead article, whether the lead author is from the US, the novelty of the title, title length, and abstract length.
