Most Recent Papers: updated: Continually
This list simply states the most recently authored papers regardless of when I got around to posting them on DefaultRisk.com.
Most Viewed Authors: updated: Apr-1
Here I list the ten most popularly "viewed" authors. I find these names by summing the "visits" to all the pages on which they were an author. Then, taking these ten names, I list the two most popular papers of each author. Remember, this is an exhibition, not a competition. Please, no wagering.
Most Viewed Papers: updated: Apr-1
This list reflects the ranking of which pages on my site were most popularly viewed (i.e., "browsed to") in the last two months. I believe that a two month rolling window is a good balance between responsiveness and stability. Very short windows overly reflect merely which papers are newly posted.
Most Prolific Credit Researchers: updated: Apr-1
This top ten list is as much a statement about the limitations of my paper collection as it is about who the most prolific researchers really are. If you see that I am not including an author or perhaps I'm lacking papers from one who seemingly ranks low, then please send me the reference (URLs) to those papers that I should add. Of course, it's most helpful to everyone else if you can refer me to a downloadable PDF formatted paper.
This Top Ten List is based on just the number of credit papers posted on DefaultRisk.com. Page-view counts are not relevant here. Papers written on liquidity risk or quantitative methods aren't counted in this listing.
Most Viewed Books: updated: Apr-1
These are the top ten most popularly viewed books in three categories on DefaultRisk.com. My hope is that this "popularity" vote by your fellow credit risk analysts/managers can serve as an additional guide to help focus your book search.
Most Viewed Abstracts: updated: Apr-1
A reference/abstract is listed on my site (rather than a full downloadable paper) because: 1) its authorship pre-dates the common use of PDF formatting, or 2) it has been published and is no longer freely accessible in PDF format. So you tend to see the older "classics" that have enduring value. For example, I would guess that Merton is the most frequently sited reference on this site.
