Humor in Science (Episode 3: surname-sharing in co-authored publications)

Humor in Science, Posts

My friend Engin pointed me to this very instructive paper by A Few Goodmen (2014) about the phenomenon of surname-sharing in co-authored publications. Absolutely frontier-pushing, as these few Goodmen explain:

Our contribution to this literature is twofold. First, we believe this paper is the first written by four economists who share a surname…Our second, and related, contribution is that the four coauthors of this paper are unrelated by marriage, blood or current campus.
