Publications on rankings are often found in journals from various fields, including tourism and hospitality. A few scholars have written articles that include league tables for ranking individual researchers, apart from research papers, on their theoretical or methodological contributions. These articles rank the most prolific or top-cited authors on a list based on the publication or citation frequency of individuals in a set of selected journals and within a specific time period. The current research note critiques the usefulness (or uselessness) of publications on ranking individuals.
