The development of Empirica?. and its anchorman Fritz Breuss
Sprache des Titels:
Evidently, a journal is shaped by the fruitful interaction of its readers, authors, reviewers, editorial board and editors. Yet, for Empirica there is hardly anybody who has guided and shaped it more since its foundation than Fritz Breuss, who served as its Managing Editor for the last dozen of years. When coming into office in early 2009 his stewardship transformed Empirica to the ?Journal of European Economics?, reflected in a new external appearance, but more importantly in a very fruitful internal development, towards a core forum for analyzing and discussing the very European economic issues. The data of the last years given in Tables 1 and 2 may serve as an indicator for this apparent development. The Journal Impact Factor has more than tripled, and so did the number of downloads.
