A new portal for economics
Economists Online will increase the visibility of economists’ research by collecting it in a single, cross-searchable portal, which will also include comprehensive individual publication lists. Additionally, Economists Online content will appear in other economics search services as well as the large internet search engines, and we will seek to improve economists’ rankings in all of these.

Economist Online went live in September 2008. The Economists Online pilot can be searched now; content is regularly being added.
