Abstract

Cet article présente une formalisation élémentaire du "marché" des publications académiques dans uncontexte d'information incomplète sur la qualité des contributions de chaque auteur. L'offre d'articlesest présentée comme le résultat d'un jeu entre le responsable d'un centre de recherche et les membresde son équipe. La demande d'articles est présentée comme le résultat d'un processus de sélection pardes rapporteurs indépendants. La définition de l'équilibre du marché des publications permet d'étudierles conséquences d'une montée en puissance des incitations à la publication. Il apparaît que l'octroi deprimes généreuses pour la publication peut induire des conséquences indésirables : baisse de la qualitédes meilleures revues, déclin des performances éditoriales des meilleurs laboratoires, diminution de larémunération des meilleurs chercheurs.
