Mayer, Michael E.
Results of a study based on earlier research, which showed that the amount of research published by faculty is one indicator of the quality of an individual faculty member and the entire faculty of a department, are reported in this paper. It reports (1) the amount of research published by members of speech communication departments in major speech communication journals and one speech communication yearbook for the years 1981-1983, and (2) the amount of research published by graduate students in speech communication publications. Results of this study discussed in the paper indicated that the amount of research published by members of a speech communication department changes over time and is also related to the terminal degree offered by the department. The paper offers suggestions for future research, including efforts to rate the quality of the journals. Tables of findings are included. (Author/DF)
