Measuring Faculty Impact
October 1, 2014
Faculty responsibilities have expanded, but faculty impact is still measured primarily by the number of publications in top journals. Should metrics change to reflect new kinds of faculty contributions?
Debra Shapiro, Herman Acguinis, and Elena Antonacopoulou, have written extensively about the importance of assessing faculty members' impact with metrics that go beyond counting publications in top-ranked journals. Debra Shapiro is the President Elect of the Academy of Management, whose nearly 20,000 members represent over 100 nations, and is the Clarice Smith Professor of Management at the University of Maryland's Smith School of Business in College Park. Herman Acquinis, the John F. Mee Chair of Management at Indiana University's Kelley School of Business in Bloomington, is also president of the Iberoamerican Academy of Management. Elena Antonacopoulou has served in a variety of committee positions with the Academy of Management, is a professor of organizational behavior at the University of Liverpool's Management School in the U.K., where she leads GNOSIS, a center for excellence in management research.>> Measuring Faculty Impact
