I use two competing theories of social influence on individual behavior, namely communication and comparison. I argue that in research networks collaboration captures communication, while citation captures comparison. I further argue that the comparison principle is likely to be the main social driver of individual research productivity and suggest a benchmark social weight matrix based on this principle. I test the benchmark matrix against several alternatives using a Bayesian model comparison procedure and conclude that the benchmark matrix outperforms alternative specifications. This result lends support to socio-economic theories underling the benchmark specification of the social weight matrix.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/47913/1/Zigova_2-1r5l1b52bny14.pdf"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:title>Specifying Social Weight Matrices of Researcher Networks : The Case of Academic Economists</dcterms:title> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
