AbstractWe study the performance of political science journals in terms of their contribution to intellectual exchange in the discipline. Relying on the interplay of citation patterns, our method is simple, cheap, objective and captures the inﬂuence of journals in a meaningful way. We ﬁnd that the American Political Science Review , World Politics and International Organization lead the ﬁeld. In contrast to previous sub jective studies, we also ﬁnd that economics is a key inﬂuence on political science, much more so than sociology.
