Are academics who publish more also more cited? Individual determinants of publication and citation records

Clement Bosquet () and Pierre-Philippe Combes ()

No 1236, AMSE Working Papers from Aix-Marseille School of Economics, France

Abstract: Thanks to a unique individual dataset of French academics in economics, we explain individual publication and citation records by gender and age, coauthorship patterns (average number of authors per article and size of the co-author network) and specialisation choices (percentage of output in each JEL code). The analysis is performed on both EconLit publication scores (adjusted for journal quality) and Google Scholar citation indexes, which allows us to present a broad picture of knowledge diffusion in economics. Citations are largely driven by publication records but also substantially increased by larger research team size and co-author networks.
