On The Return To Journal Quality, Coauthorship And Author Order Within Top Ranked Agricultural Economics Programs
AbstractUtilizing an original data set containing annual salaries and peer-reviewed publication histories for 326 faculty members from top-ranked Ph.D.-granting programs we examine the labor market for academic agricultural economists. The results suggest that higher quality publications have a greater impact on annual earnings, that sole authored articles have a higher return than multi-authored articles and that no wage premium exists for being the lead author of a non-alphabetic paper.
