Mentoring in Higher Education: Does It Enhance Mentees' Research Productivity?
Muschallik, Julia; Pull, Kerstin
Education Economics, v24 n2 p210-223 2016
Mentoring programs are increasingly widespread in academia. Still, comparatively little is known about their effects. With the help of a self-collected dataset of 368 researchers in two different fields and accounting for self-selection via matching techniques, we find mentees in formal mentoring programs to be more productive than comparable researchers who do not participate in a formal program--irrespective of whether these instead have an informal mentor or not. Informal mentoring relationships, to the contrary, do not positively affect mentees' research productivity.
