Citations, Publications, and Perceptions-Based Rankings of the Research Impact of North American Forestry Programs
Abstract:Using the online citation service available through the Institute for Scientific Information and publication records, we constructed rankings of 53 North American forestry programs based on (1) total citations to the scholarly contributions of current faculty, (2) citations per research faculty member, (3) total number of publications in five top forestry journals, (4) total number of pages, (5) total number of publications per research faculty member, and (6) total number of page per research faculty member, from January 1997 to December 2001. We then compared these results against a ranking of the top forestry schools, based on perceived research profile, as indicated by survey responses from deans and department heads.
