A Study of Institutional Productivity in "Reading World": 1978-1983.
Johns, Jerry L.
To discover the institutional affiliation of those scholars publishing articles in "Reading World" and to determine if there were differences among those institutions when the size of the reading faculty was taken into consideration, all articles and research studies published in that journal from October 1978 through May 1983 were reviewed. Following an established research procedure, each article or study was given a credit of 1.0. When more than one author and institution appeared in a contribution, credit was assigned proportionally to each institution. After credits were assigned, a count was made to determine the number of articles or studies contributed by each institution. Then, a list of those institutions contributing more than three articles or studies was made. Results indicated that seven institutions accounted for approximately 16% of the possible credits: (1) University of Georgia, (2) Kansas State University, (3) Northern Illinois University, (4) Texas A and M University, (5) University of Delaware, (6) West Virginia University, and (7) University of Connecticut. When the size of the reading faculty was taken into account, there was a change in the rankings, with the University of Delaware, Texas A and M, Northern Illinois University, the University of Connecticut, and the University of Georgia comprising the top five institutions.
