Increases in Faculty Publishing Activity: An Analysis of ARL and ACRL Institutions

John M. Budd

Abstract

This study builds on a previous one that focused on publishing productivity of faculty at ARL institutions for the period 1991–1993. The present research expands the analysis to the period 1995–1997 and adds an examination of faculty activity at selected ACRL institutions for the two time periods. Measures of total publications and per capita publications per institution increased significantly for both groups over the two time periods. The increases indicate that, for what is likely to be a complex set of factors, faculty feel the need to communicate more and are turning to traditional print outlets for at least some of the communication. Deliberations on the future of scholarly communication should incorporate the views and practices of faculty.
