i love this blogpost and earlier ones like it, Eric. Prestige plays a disproportionate role in our discipline: where to submit (a prestigious journal foremost), whom to hire (someone from a top department), whom to invite as a keynote (a rising star) I know it is like this in general in academia, but I'm wondering if the Matthew effect does not disproportionately play in our discipline?
