This paper analyzes the early research performance of PhD graduates in labor economics, addressing the following questions: Are there major productivity differences between graduates from American and European institutions? If so, how relevant is the quality of the training received (i.e. ranking of institution and supervisor) and the research environment in the subsequent job placement institution? The population under study consists of labor economics PhD graduates who received their degree… 
What Makes a Working Paper in Economics Publishable?: A Tale from the Scientific Periphery
Research on scientific production and publications in the field of economics has positively boomed in the last few years. However, hardly any attention has been dedicated to the production of working
Early Career Research Production in Economics: Does Mentoring Matter?
We assess the role played by advisory supervision on the early stage productivity of recent PhDs in economics using a tailor-made data set based on RePEc. After allowing for the potential effects of

Predicting early career productivity of PhD economists: Does advisor-match matter?
TLDR
It is found that both advisory quality and rank of the graduation institution are positively related to the academic productivity of graduates, however, in top institutions, students working with the most productive academics do not outperform others unless they co-author with their advisor.
The Effect of PhD Funding on Postdegree Research Career and Publication Productivity
This paper explores the extent to which PhD funding encourages postdegree research career and leads to publications. Using novel data on Italian PhD graduates, I find positive modest effects of

TLDR
The analysis shows that the status of a faculty member’s academic origin is not a significant determinant of research productivity in the field of information systems, and continued reliance on academic pedigree as a primary criterion for hiring decisions may not be justified in the IS discipline.
