Abstract

This paper aims at estimating the determinants of co-authorship in economics. More specifically, we test the existence of a potential relationship between the research efficiency of an individual and that of his co-authors using a novem database of French academics. The main empirical result is that the number and the quality of a researcher's co-authors reflect the productivity of this researcher.
