Publication productivity of a selected group of nurse educators from 1981 through 1991;
The results of this study show a wide range of productivity from 1 to 78 publications produced per subject and a total of 612 publications produced by the entire sample over the 10-year period studied. Within this study sample, a high level of productivity was achieved by a small percentage of subjects. The highly productive researchers in this study remained productive, but the least productive researchers remained nonproductive. Therefore, data results demonstrated inconstant publication productivity within the assumed homogenous sample group but consistent individual productivity for the study subjects over time. Further investigation should be done in the area of faculty research productivity in order to determine the validity of the baseline productivity norm rates found in this study. In addition to this, further studies comparing subjective versus objective data on research productivity are needed.
