讲座内容介绍:

The principle of cumulative advantage (CA) or success-breeds-success has been found to apply to the area of research productivity. This paper investigates the magnitudes, life-course changes, individual differences, determinants, and implications of cumulative advantage in the field of marketing. This study differs from the prior literature in that (1) it directly estimates cumulative advantage at individual level, (2) it accounts for diminishing returns of cumulative advantage, (3) it computes publishing capacity and simulates the head start effect, and (4) it examines differences across research areas, demographics, and cohorts of graduates. A significant CA effect is found for every researcher, but with diminishing returns. Researchers who see faster productivity growth in their early career years also tend to experience faster productivity decline in their late career years, and the correlation is particularly strong for tiered publications. The researchers have large publishing capacities, but the publishing potentials are generally far from being fully realized. Cumulative advantage of publishing generates a strong head start effect on publication in early career years. There exists substantial heterogeneity across researchers in their research ability, advantage accumulating and diminishing rates, and publishing capacity, and the main determinants of these differences are individual researcher’s type of research area, gender, PhD school rank, PhD training, and country of origin. However, contrary to the prior literature, cumulative advantage of publishing does not lead to growing inequality in productivity over academic age, although there are considerable differences across cohorts of doctoral graduates.
