Publisher Description

This study examined the relationship between reputation and productivity among social work researchers. The authors devised a method to gauge reputational standing, using nominations from journal editors, research textbook authors, and heads of research-dedicated social work organizations. Productivity was measured by number of articles, number of books, number of book chapters, and number of citations in the social work literature. The study found that productivity rates varied consistently among the three reputational groups (based on number of nominations)in the expected direction. Within the high reputation group there were no differences in productivity levels. However, a wide range in productivity was found within each grouping. Various interpretations and implications of the results are offered. Key words: citations; productivity; publishing; reputation; researchers
