Faculty Skills and the Reward Structure in Academe.
Tuckman, Howard P.; And Others
What is the relationship between salaries and the functioning of the academic marketplace? Are the salaries of faculty members determined to a substantial degree by market valuation of their skills. The skills market, however, may differ across disciplines and sexes, and therefore the reward for a given skill may differ correspondingly. Findings indicate that (1) faculty salaries do differ by discipline and sex; (2) women earn less than men with like characteristics; (3) teaching and public service yields low compensation; (4) publishing and administration carry much larger returns.
