School of Information Studies Garners National Attention for Its Scholarly Productivity


A new article, Scholarly Productivity of U.S. LIS Faculty by Denice Adkins and John Budd in the autumn 2006 issue of Library & Information Science Research, ranks the Syracuse University School of Information Studies as fourth in the nation for programs with the most journal articles.
The School of Information Studies ranked seventh for the program with the most citations to faculties' works, with Professor Robert Benjamin receiving individual honors as the 22nd most commonly cited researcher. Also, professors R. David Lankes and Jeff Stanton were ranked in the top 12 most productive library and information science (LIS) faculty members in terms of journal publications. These findings showed a marked increase in scholarly productivity rankings for the School of Information Studies since the previous study in 2000.
The study was based on publication and citation data for the years 1999 to 2004, and is the fourth in a series to examine LIS faculty and program productivity as measured by publication and citation. To view the complete article, visit
