The Impact of Inbreeding and Immobility on the Professional Role and Scholarly Performance of Academic Scientists.
Dutton, Jeffrey E.
This paper explores the effects of limited experience resulting from professional immobility on faculty teaching and research role orientations and faculty productivity. The correlates of institutional inbreeding treated as a form of immobility are examined. Data are provided from a large-scale, nationally representative survey of college and university faculty members. This study examines a broad array of dependent variables, including time spent in research, self-reported commitment to teaching, and total number of published articles during a scientists' professional lifetime.
