This study extended the work of three previous studies that compared the scholarly productivity of faculty members in universities as represented in nine literacy journals. The top 25 universities were identified and this study shows that several institutions have remained consistent through the years as those that produce the largest amount of scholarship. As in previous studies, the University of Georgia ranked first by a substantial margin. This ranking was adjusted according to faculty size, resulting in a reordering of institutions--the University of Georgia remained first. The top 22 universities publishing in two leading literacy research journals--"Reading Research Quarterly and Journal of Literacy Research"--were also identified. This study also indicates an increase in scholarly work by multiple authors from collaborating institutions, including those from public schools. (Contains 3 tables.)
