APPENDIX F Data on Publication Records Data for measures 17 and 18 were furnished to the committee by the Institute for Scientific Information. The publication records of individual faculty members were derived from the 1978, 1979, and 1980 issues of Social Science Citation Index, compiled and maintained by the l Institute. The faculty names (provided by institutional coordinators) were matched with the names of authors and coauthors of all articles published in social science journals during this three-year period. To facilitate the name-matching process, the institutional addresses of authors and the fields of the journals in which their articles appeared were compared with faculty members' university addresses and program fields. Measure 17 constitutes the total number of 1978-80 articles that have been linked with the names of faculty in a program. Measure 18 is the fraction of program faculty members who had at least one article attributed to them during this three-year period. These measures should not be confused with measures 15 and 16, reported for programs in the mathematical and physical sciences, engineering, and the biological sciences. The latter pair of measures were derived from the Science Citation Index and were not based on matching the names of individual faculty members with the names of authors. A detailed description of the derivation of measures 15 and 16 is contained in Appendix F of the committee's first volume on programs in the mathematical and physical sciences. Data for measures 15 and 16 have been compiled for 148 research-doctorate programs in psychology and are presented in Appendix J of this volume.
