International cooperation is increasingly important for the growth of specialized knowledge in Economics. This paper examines the effect of the international affiliations of Chinese authors on their tenure-track publications. We say that a paper has international affiliations if it has one of the following three components: foreign co-authors, concurrent placements in foreign institutions for Chinese authors, and Ph.D. degrees earned in foreign institutions by Chinese authors. We find that foreign co-authors and foreign placements significantly increase the probability of tenure-track publications. The foreign degree also has a positive coefficient in logistic regression, but a statistical significance is lacking.
