Rawls Real Estate Research Ranked Top 25 Internationally
By: Trevor Bell
A recent article published in the Journal of Real Estate Literature (JREL) examining the publishing activities of authors across the top three academic real estate journals ranks Texas Tech University - specifically faculty members in the Area of Finance - No. 23 in the world, with respect to publications since 2000. When the productivity rankings are expanded to include leading field journals in both housing and real estate investments, Texas Tech's ranking improves to a four-way tie for No. 18. This latter ranking places Texas Tech ahead of every other Big XII institution; one spot below the University of California-Berkeley; and tied with the University of Cambridge (UK), University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Globally, the top real estate research institutions were identified as National University of Singapore, University of Connecticut, and University of Florida, respectively. The JREL is a publication of the American Real Estate Society (ARES) and serves as a collective source of real estate research and information.
Individually, Area of Finance Professor David M. Harrison, Ph.D., who serves as an editor for the JREL, was also recognized as one of only 33 researchers globally to have published multiple articles in each of the top three outlets over the sample period, and one of only 17 authors to have published at least one article in all five journals examined. Harrison's research is focused primarily on real estate investment trusts and mortgage markets.
