The Input Relationship Between Co-Authors in Economics

Abstract

This study addresses the question of what the relative input relationship is between co-authors in economics. Using the direct addilog production function, the partial elasticities of substitution between co-authors are estimated. The empirical results suggest that co-authors in economics are equivalent substitutes in production. The empirical results are robust whether the direct addilog production is estimated using each co-author's research capital stock, depreciated research capital stock, impact-adjusted research capital stock, or depreciated impact-adjusted research capital stock.
