This article analyzes 551 finance articles published between 1974 and 2001 at a sample of Brazilian academic journals besides 264 articles that appeared in the proceedings of the ANPAD meetings. Most articles are single authored. Author productivity is more concentrated in fewer individuals and is lower than suggested by the bibliometric theory. Over 70 percent of the authors published one single article. The articles from authors that published 4 or more journal articles show a greater average age than the articles from equally prolific authors in the ANPAD proceedings. Most prolific journal article authors are affiliated to UFRJ, PUC/RJ and USP. Authors from the former Ibmec are well ranked but their articles are concentrated in their institution’s own publication in the 1970’s and 80’s. Authors affiliated to UFRGS, UFRJ, and PUC/RJproduced two thirds of the articles from authors with 4 or more articles in the ANPAD proceedings.
