|September 2018||Differences in Citation Patterns across Journal Tiers in Economics|
with Sebastian Galiani, Ramiro H. Gálvez: w25101
We analyze citations patterns of more than 6,000 economics research articles published in top five, second tier, and top field journals. In line with previous literature, we find that although top five journals’ articles generally receive more citations and the life cycles of those citations are longer, their influence (in term of citations) is overestimated: a (non-)successful top five article receives only 3.5 (4) times as many cites as an equivalently (non-)successful second tier of top field article. Our contribution is to show that this ratio is strongly associated with the field of economics research, e.g. this ratio is lowest for econometric methods papers, and with the success of articles (as measured by citation counts), e.g. in all fields of economics research, except for theory,...
|February 2015||Collective Action: Experimental Evidence|
with Brian Feld, Sebastian Galiani, Gustavo Torrens: w20936
We conducted a laboratory experiment to test the comparative statics predictions of a new approach to collective action games based on the method of stability sets. We find robust support for the main theoretical predictions. As we increase the payoff of a successful collective action (accruing to all players and only to those who contribute), the share of cooperators increases. The experiment also points to new avenues for refining the theory. We find that, as the payoff of a successful collective action increases, subjects tend to upgrade their prior beliefs as to the expected share of cooperators. Although this does not have a qualitative effect on comparative static predictions, using the reported distribution of beliefs rather than an ad hoc uniform distribution reduces the gap betwee...
