Close physical location of authors might increase coauthoring. Wineman, Kabo, and Davis (2009) found that being in the same academic department predicted coauthoring, whereas long physical distances between faculty on a campus decreased coauthoring slightly.
Moody (2004) said sharing expertise in quantitative methods has been associated with coauthoring in sociology.
If coauthoring is beneficial, it should be rewarded.
Does coauthoring improve publication quality (tentatively answered here with some initial data on citations)?
Generally, I used the term coauthoring to refer to the coproduction in a single work by any pair of authors, whereas collaboration refers to combined instances of a pair of authors coauthoring in multiple works.
Thus, although women appear to differ in both the average propensity to publish and coauthor, the empirical analysis examines whether such differences remain after conditioning on the observed differences in attributes and accounting for the correlation in the unobserved attributes related to the probability of publishing and coauthoring.
However, the results also indicate that conditioned on publishing, both the PhD and current job quality are negatively related to the probability of coauthoring, which suggests either that more able economists are less dependent on coauthors or that economists who originate from (or place in) more publishing-oriented institutions have reward structures that provide greater incentives to produce single-authored work.
Alternatively, the coefficients on the variable indicating a placement in a historically top-rated department suggest that having access to a network of high-quality colleagues significantly improves an economist's probability of publishing and coauthoring, which supports the hypothesis that networks improve productivity.
It is noteworthy that, whereas the univariate probit results predict that women are also significantly less likely to coauthor than men, the bivariate results indicate no gender differences in the probability of coauthoring conditioned on publishing.
During the same period, however, other changes in technology may have affected the ease of coauthoring more generally.
We might pose the problem revealed by our data as follows: Why are economists engaging in expensive distant partnering when it does not appear to be as productive as a less costly coauthoring alternative?
Another implication is that female researchers will tend to work alone more frequently than males so that gender is negatively related to the probability of coauthoring where female = 1.
Following existing models of the coauthorship decision, we include experience and other control variables to capture characteristics of the author's field of specialty.(10) Based on previous research, more experience is expected to increase the probability of coauthoring. The greater the number of economists in an author's field, the higher the probability of locating a collaborator.
We therefore include a gender-experience interacted variable such that if women experience more significant career interruptions than men, then the expected impact on coauthoring is negative.
The positive sign on the gender-department size variable indicates, as predicted, that it is female economists in smaller departments who experience an especially low probability of coauthoring.(12) To evaluate the net impact of gender on coauthoring, we take the partial derivative of model (2) with respect to gender and solve separately for the underlying male and female probabilities of coauthoring.
