  1. Notes: Dependent variables are publications in journals in a category described in the column title. Constant refers to journals that retained their ABS journal ranking between 2010 and 2015, While Downgraded and Upgraded refers to journals that had their rankings decreased and increased, respectively. The dependent variable takes value 100 if a paper is published in journal of that category and zero otherwise. This allows to interpret coefficients as shares of the observations in panel published in given journal category at a given age. ABS15 is a dummy variable that takes value 1 in years in which the ABS15 ranking is valid for the UK-based scholars, i.e. years 2015, 2016 and 2017. Age is number of years since the first upload to IDEAS/RePEc. *** p < 0.001, ** p < 0.01, * p < 0.05.
