    This paper scrutinizes the publishing histories of associate and tenured professors of economic sciences in the Czech Republic. According to domestic regulation, only certain universities may grant associate and tenured professorships. Such universities require that professorial candidates publish original work in internationally credible academic journals. To investigate whether such publishing requirement is indeed fulfilled, the authors studied the publishing histories of those who were granted tenured or associate professorships from January 1999 to June 2005 using the Social Sciences Citation Index developed by the Institute of Scientific Information. They found that, of the professors tenured in the respective period, almost 54 percent had not published any journal article before their appointment. At the same time, some 85 percent had not published an article in a foreign academic journal. Similar results held for those who were made associate professors in that period. It appears, then, that Czech universities in fact do not regard publishing as a principal factor on the academic tenure-track in the economic sciences.
