Abstract: Using a large dataset of research seminars held at US economics departmentsin 2018, I explore the factors that determine who is invited to present at aresearch seminar and whether the invitation is accepted. I find thathigh-quality scholars have a higher probability of being invited thanlow-quality scholars, and researchers are more likely to accept an invitationif it is issued by a top economics department. The probability of being invitedincreases with the size of the host department. Young and low-quality scholarshave a higher probability of accepting an invitation. The distance between thehost department and invited scholar reduces the probability of being invitedand accepting the invitation. Female scholars do not have a lower probabilityof being invited to give a research seminar than men.
