Updated Study of Per Capita Faculty Productivity

Lucinda Harrison-Cox, Raquel Ortiz, and Michael Yelnosky of Roger Williams Law have updated their annual study of per capita faculty scholarly productivity in top journals, now from 1993 to 2012.  The results are here.  

Their research focuses on schools outside the US News Top 50, and uses a modified version of the methodology Brian employs in this ranking.  

As Brian pointed out previously, this list gives some insight into which regional schools have more of a scholarly culture.  

I hope nobody will blame me for noting that in Drexel's debut year in the study, our faculty cracked the Top 40. That's not bad, given that the majority of our faculty members weren't scholars during most of the relevant time period (which began in 1993); most were hired into their first tenure track job in 2006 or later.
