Abstract

This study explores the social ecology of publication productivity in the Journal of Consumer Research (Volumes 1 through 20). It examines the distribution of scholarly productivity as it relates to collaborative networks of authors. It is found that these networks resemble tree-like structures with successful scholars as their "trunks" and collaborators as the branches. Thus, we find structural effects of network centrality of authors on their individual publication productivity and of network density on network publication productivity.
