Faculty Rank System, Research Motivation, and Faculty Research Productivity: Measure Refinement and Theory Testing.
Tien, Flora F.; Blackburn, Robert T.
Journal of Higher Education, v67 n1 p2-22 Jan-Feb 1996
A study explored the relationship between the traditional system of college faculty rank and faculty research productivity from the perspectives of behavioral reinforcement theory and selection function. Six hypotheses were generated and tested, using data from a 1989 national faculty survey. Results failed to support completely either the reinforcement schedule theory or the selection function of academic rank. (Author/MSE)
