Predictors of Scholarly Productivity

On the weekend in which law schools are interviewing aspiring law teachers for tenure-track jobs, it is perhaps worth calling attention to this:

only two variables had any predictive power for “more and better” scholarship: (1) number of articles before first tenure-track job, and (2) publication of a student note. Judicial clerkships, law review membership, rank of graduating institution, other graduate degrees, and teaching experience were not significant predictors.
