Abstract: Peer networks can positively affect individual careers and the scientific enterprise as a whole. People’s willingness to contribute to such networks is poorly understood. In an email experiment, we investigated how framing the future research environment affects people’s willingness to contribute to an emerging academic network. In spite of relatively large treatment effects, we do not find statistically significant effects of pessimistic or optimistic messaging on the willingness to contribute. We discuss limitations of the small sample size and the future research potential of network nudges.
