Figures from this paper


Use of the Journal Impact Factor in academic review, promotion, and tenure evaluations
The Journal Impact Factor (JIF) was originally designed to aid libraries in deciding which journals to index and purchase for their collections. Over the past few decades, however, it has become aExpand
Quality, quantity, and impact in academic publication
Publication records of 85 social-personality psychologists were tracked from the time of their doctoral studies until 10 years post-PhD. Associations between publication quantity (number ofExpand
Researchers’ risk-smoothing publication strategies: Is productivity the enemy of impact?
The results indicate some evidence for the “productivity as the enemy of impact” hypothesis in chemistry, where publishing at the higher margin of productivity leads to a stagnant or declining publication impact. Expand
Incentives and Creativity: Evidence from the Academic Life Sciences
Despite its presumed role as an engine of economic growth, we know surprisingly little about the drivers of scientific creativity. In this paper, we exploit key differences across funding streamsExpand
Estimates of the Continuously Publishing Core in the Scientific Workforce
The proportion of the scientific workforce that maintains a continuous uninterrupted stream of publications each and every year over many years is very limited, but it accounts for the lion’s share of researchers with high citation impact. Expand
The Journal Impact Factor: A brief history, critique, and discussion of adverse effects
This chapter provides a brief history of the indicator and highlights well-known limitations-such as the asymmetry between the numerator and the denominator, differences across disciplines, the insufficient citation window, and the skewness of the underlying citation distributions. Expand
Productivity does not equal usefulness
It is suggested that the identification of “hyperprolific” authors should consider not only quantity, but also the usefulness of research activities (measured in terms of citations). Expand
Three dimensions of scientific impact
A model that can accurately recreate a citation record based on just three parameters: the number of publications, the total number of citations, and the degree of randomness in the citation patterns is crafted. Expand
The evaluation of scholarship in academic promotion and tenure processes: Past, present, and future
To determine the most useful way to change RPT, the needs and perceptions of faculty and administrators are assessed, and a better understanding of the level of influence of written RPT guidelines and policy in an often vague process that is meant to allow for flexibility in assessing individuals is gained. Expand
Performance-based university research funding systems
The university research environment has been undergoing profound change in recent decades and performance-based research funding systems (PRFSs) are one of the many novelties introduced. This paperExpand
