A New Standard for Measuring Doctoral Programs
There is yet another doctoral program measure, says The Chronicle:
The Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index… rates faculty members’ scholarly output at nearly 7,300 doctoral programs around the country. It examines the number of book and journal articles published by each program’s faculty, as well as journal citations, awards, honors, and grants received.
Well, interesting. The Chronicle provides a list of these most “productive” English departments here:
1. Princeton U.
2. U. of Georgia
3. Pennsylvania State U.
4. Washington U. in St. Louis
5. Johns Hopkins U.
5. Stanford U.
7. U. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
8. U. of California at Berkeley
8. U. of Florida
10. City U. of New York Graduate Center
10. U. of Chicago
But can they teach?
