Abstract: There have been 89 Nobel Prize winners in economics since 1969, representing 89 different areas of economic decision-making. Based on the Web of Science (WoS) database, the publication profiles of Nobel awardees have been analysed using a bibliometric approach. Descriptive analysis has been performed to identify the share of institutions and countries in NPES. To identify the most productive authors, articles, and journals in NPES, bibliometric indicators such as total publications, citations, h index, and citations per publication, degree of collaboration were analysed. The analysis reveals that the University of Chicago has produced the most Nobel laureates in economics, with the USA occupying the lion's share of the NPES. In this study, the authors explored the most popular journal and the most significant contribution of Nobel laureates. A brief account of the papers considered to have the maximum research impact has been synthesised.
