Peter Oh's Empirical Study on Corp & Securities Articles
Posted by David Zaring

Okay, this isn't entirely new, but it's alway entertaining to look at a citation analysis, and I'm not sure if Peter Oh's paper on the citation patterns of the best corporate and securities articles has gotten much attention.  It's lacking conclusions, but it takes a couple of takes on the the best corporate law papers of the past fifteen years ago, and compares them with a random selected sample of Columbia, Harvard, and Yale Law Review/Journal articles.  It also shows that your average top corporate law article, even when picked by law professors, gets outcited by your randomly selected CHY article - which is a trend I've often thought exemplifies some of the resilience, for better or for ill, of student law review publications, which are cited much, much more often than are peer reviewed publications, with a ranking bias.  It also shows that corporate law pieces may continue to face a citation handicap compared to con law or IP.  We'll see if that continues.  Table 1 is the place to look for the data, which I won't reproduce here partly because there appears to be a "do not reproduce" request in the SSRN draft.
