Abstract: 
This study examines the determinants of citation success among authors who recently published their work in economic history journals. We find that full professors, authors from non-economic history departments, and authors working in Anglo-Saxon countries are all more likely to get cited than others whereas affiliation at a top-ranked university has no seeming effect. A number of bibliometric features like article length and number of co-authors also matter for citation success. Our most novel finding is that active diffusion of one’s research, e.g., academic presentations (at conferences, workshops or seminars) or online publication of working papers, has a first-order impact on subsequent citation success.
