  1. Notes: Dependent variables are publications in journals in a category described in the column title. The name of the category refers to the change in ABS journal ranking between the 2015 and 2010 editions. The variable takes value 100 if a paper is published in a journal of that category and zero otherwise. ABS15 is a dummy variable that takes value one in years in which the ABS15 ranking is valid for the UK-based scholars, i.e. years 2015, 2016 and 2017. Variables 2nd—4th and subsequent version are dummy variables that represent the number of the working paper versions uploaded to the repository. All regression specifications include paper age and paper fixed effects and the number of versions covariates. All standard errors are clustered at the paper age level. *** p < 0.001, ** p < 0.01, * p < 0.05.
