HUSBAND AND WIFE THRIVE ?
PERFORMANCE OF GERMAN DOCTORAL COUPLES IN NATURAL SCIENCES

Andreas Rehs
Dominik Heinisch

Abstract : We analyze whether marriage or cohabitation to another scientists increases scientific performance in citations counts. In addition, we investigate gender related performance differentials in academic pairs. We match data of completed dissertations from the German National Library with publications. Couples are identified by scraping 80.000 dissertation acknowledgements for the name of the partner. Comparing scientific couples with a matched control group of scientists with most likely no scientific partner, we find no significant differences in citation rates. Being married to another scientist does not increase scientists’ average quality of publications. Men also do not profit more strongly from a scientific partner than women.
