Changing Patterns of Publication Productivity: Accumulative Advantage or Institutional Isomorphism?
Dey, Eric L.; Milem, Jeffrey F.; Berger, Joseph B.
Sociology of Education, v70 n4 p308-23 Oct 1997
Investigates two competing perspectives, accumulated advantage and institutional isomorphism, on the relationship between publication productivity and institutional hierarchy. Accumulated advantage refers to the continuing attraction of students, faculty, and research dollars to prestige universities. Institutional isomorphism denotes the tendency of institutions to model themselves after the leaders. (MJP)
