Young and Senior Science and Engineering Faculty, 1974: Support, Research Participation, and Tenure.
Dickens, Charles H.
Presented are the results of a survey, initiated in mid-1974 by the National Science Foundation, to update the findings of a 1968 survey designed to obtain information on research activities of faculty in colleges and universities. Survey topics deal with faculty composition, tenure, proportion of faculty active in research, division of research support between young and senior staff, ability of researchers to secure support in research areas of their own choosing, and changes in time spent by faculty in classroom teaching. Although information reported came from department heads, information was requested for both young and senior investigators. The document's three appendices contain information on methodology, annotated statistical tables, and copies of survey instruments. (PEB)
