APPENDIX J Alternative Measures of Published Articles in Psychology Data from the 1978 and 1979 issues of Science Citation Index have been compiled on published articles associated with research-doctorate programs in psychology and are presented in Table J-1. (Comparable data are not available in any of the other social and behavioral science dis- ciplines.) Publication counts were associated with programs on the basis of the discipline of the journal in which the article appeared and the institution with which the author was affiliated. Two measures have been derived from the publication records: measure 15, the total number of articles published in the 1978-79 period that have been associated with a research-doctorate program, and measure 16, an estimation of the "in- fluence" of these articles. The latter is a product of the number of articles attributed to a program and the estimated influence of the journals in which these articles appeared. The influence of a journal is determined from the weighted number of times, on the average, an article in that journal is cited--with references from frequently cited journals counting more heavily. A more detailed description of the derivation of these measures may be found in Appendix F of the committee's volume on the mathematical and physical sciences, wherein a discussion of the particular limitations of these measures is given on pages 28-29. Measures 15 and 16 have also been compiled and reported for research- doctorate programs in 16 disciplines in the mathematical and physical sciences, engineering, and the biological sciences. The availability in psychology of measures 15 and 16 as well as measures 17 and 18 affords an opportunity to compare program results on these two pairs of measures. Also of interest are the correlations, reported on the second page of Table J.1, of measures 15 and 16 with each of the other measures used to evaluate programs in psychology. It is not surprising to find a high correlation (r = .78) between measures 15 and 17 since both are estimates of total publication productivity in a program. In comparing these two measures, however, one should keep in mind that they are based on article counts from different sets of journals (Science Citation Index versus Social Science Citation Index) and that the methodologies employed to derive these counts were quite different. 247

"NA" indicates that the value for a measure is not available. Since the scale used to compute measure 16 is entirely arbitrary, only values in standardized form are reported for this measure.
