Library School Programs and the Successful Training of Academic Librarians to Meet Promotion and Tenure Requirements in the Academy
Best, Rickey D.; Kneip, Jason
College & Research Libraries, v71 n2 p97-114 Mar 2010
This article relates an investigation of tenure and promotion practices for librarians at academic institutions. The study employed two surveys. The first survey determined the level of impact on promotion and tenure by recent publication in two top-tier peer-reviewed journals: "College & Research Libraries" and "Journal of Academic Librarianship." The second survey was developed and distributed to authors of articles in the two journals requesting information about the nature of their library positions. Although more research is warranted, it appears that librarians at academic institutions tend to publish more frequently in top-tier journals, enhancing our professional literature.
