Using data from five annual conferences of the European Association for Research in Industrial Economics (EARIE), we shed light on the role of academic conferences in disseminating research results and on research in IO. Among other things, we find that (i) there are disagreements between members of the scientific committee when they evaluate the same paper in almost half of the cases, though large disagreements are present in only 6% of the cases; (ii) between 40%−50% of the submitted papers remain unpublished years after the conference and those that are published, take on average over 3 years to get published; (iii) presentation at the conference is associated with a higher likelihood of publishing in an IO journal, although only 19% of the published papers appear in IO journals; (iv) empirical papers and co-authored papers are more likely to get published and get more citations when published; (v) accepted papers receive more citations when published than rejected papers; and (vi) publications in economics journals receive substantially fewer citations than publications in adjacent fields like entrepreneurship and finance.
