One important objective of the double first-class program in China is to cultivate disciplines with international competitiveness, and "overseas returnee" teachers as the critical power have active effects on the internationalization of Chinese economic disciplines overall. But which kind of "oversea returnee" teachers has stronger scientific research output capacity and plays the bigger role in the double first-class program of economic disciplines in China?This paper collects personal information of 882 full-time "overseas returnee" teachers from "985 program" universities and "211 program" finance & economics universities in China and then matches this information with 2074 English papers published on the international authoritative SSCI journals. Then it uses Bibliometrics to study the quantity and quality of published papers of "overseas returnee" teachers and the driving factors behind. It arrives at the following conclusions:firstly, the ranks of universities where "overseas returnee" teachers have obtained the doctor's degree not only have the positive effect on the quantity of published papers of "overseas returnee" teachers, but also would enhance the influences of their published papers; secondly, the ranks of universities where "overseas returnee" teachers have obtained the bachelor's degree are not important to paper output, and have no significant effects on the quantity or the quality of published papers; thirdly, the undergraduate major plays a significant role in paper output, and compared with "overseas returnee" teachers majored in literature and history, "overseas returnee" teachers majored in economics & management and science & engineering publish more papers, but the influences of their papers have no significant differences. This paper provides an important reference from a perspective of papers published by "overseas returnee" teachers for the construction of "double first-class" program and directions for future talent construction in finance-class universities at the present stage.
