Collaboration and Impact in Legal Academia

Whalen, Ryan, Collaboration and Impact in Legal Academia (July 2, 2018). Available at SSRN: – “This paper examines the state of collaborative research posted on LSN subject matter e-journals. It provides quantitative analyses of how collaboration relates to downloads, school-ranking, gender, and geographic distance. Findings include a positive relationship between collaboration and impact, a tendency for men to collaborate more than women, and a tendency for scholars to prefer collaborations with others at similarly-ranked institutions.”
