Social Ties in Academia: a Friend is a Treasure

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivistapeer review

Abstract

This paper employs a unique dataset on articles, authors and editors of the top general interest journals in economics to investigate the role of social connections in the publication process. Ties between editors and authors are identified based on their academic histories. About 43% of the articles published in these journals are authored by scholars connected to one editor at the time of the publication. PhD students and faculty colleagues of an editor also improve their publication outcomes when this editor is in charge of a journal.
