Coauthorship networks and research output


König, Michael D; Liu, Xiaodong; Zimmermann, Christian (2015). Coauthorship networks and research output. Working paper series / Department of Economics 203, University of Zurich.

Abstract

We study the impact of research collaborations in coauthorship networks on total research output. Through the links in the collaboration network researchers create spillovers not only to their direct coauthors but also to researchers indirectly linked to them. We characterize the interior equilibrium when multiple agents spend effort in multiple, possibly overlapping projects, and there are interaction effects in the cost of effort.
