A Study of the Publication of Scholarly Output in Economics Journals
AbstractThe purpose of this paper is to extend previous research by investigating the allocation of space (number of printed pages) by editors and co-editors of economics journals. We present evidence indicating that the average article length may be affected by the author's previously established and currently existing affiliations with editors and co-editors. Networks established in graduate school or through current employment appear to be one factor in the space allocation decision while gender does not. As a result, non-affiliated women and men authors are equally affected in the allocation of scarce journal space.
