The purpose of this study was to determine author productivity by faculty rank (e.g., assistant, associate, full professor) and assess author output in terms of single or coauthorship. We examined author productivity from three prominent national journals within the field of music education across a 15-year period, 1989 through 2003, and determined faculty rank at the time of publication. A total of 725 articles were identified over this period. Data analysis revealed that of the total (N = 1007) single and coauthors identified, 513 (71%) were single authored and 212 (29%) were coauthored publications. Assistant Professors were proportionally the most productive faculty members and produced more single authored articles than any other group. Associate Professor authors were more active in writing single authored articles than Full Professor authors. (Contains 3 tables.)
