Co-authorship in economic history and economics: are we any different?

Andrew Seltzer () and Daniel Hamermesh ()

Economic History Working Papers from London School of Economics and Political Science, Department of Economic History

Abstract: Over the last six decades articles published in leading economic history journals have been less likely to be coauthored than articles published in leading general economics journals. However, in both economic history and general economics journals there have been strong, monotonic increases in the number of authors per article and the fraction of co-authored papers. Economics and economic history differ in the nature of collaboration, in that co-authorships in economic history are more likely to be formed of individuals of different seniority as compared to economics generally
