Workplace Correlates and Scholarly Performance of Clinical Pharmacy Faculty. ASHE Annual Meeting Paper.
Jungnickel, Paul W.; Creswell, John W.
This study examined workplace correlates (departmental and college) of scholarly performance in 296 college faculty members from 67 schools of pharmacy in the United States. The study estimated a model of 3-year scholarly performance through the exploration of six sets of correlates: demographic; affiliation; collaboration; research experiences and orientation; department; and college variables. Data obtained through self-reports shows that approximately one quarter of the respondents had published no refereed articles and the average faculty member published slightly over one article per year in the last 3 years; a finding not much different than other faculty populations, yet still slightly under national averages. Positive correlates of scholarly performance by pharmacy faculty were shown to be time spent in research and in collaboration with colleagues. However, department chair support, college resource support factors, and to a lesser extent, demographic characteristics and prior research experience and orientation seemed to be of less influence on scholarly work. Overall, the study concluded that the profile of a typical scholar in pharmacy is of an individual who spends substantial time on research (as high as 40 percent), contacts others about research both outside and within his/her college, receives personnel support, is tenured and experienced, works in a pharmacy college located in an academic health center, and has a chairperson supportive of scholarly activities.
