The Art History Newsletter posted a recent article in the Chronicle of Higher Education about the Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index stats in “Art History and Criticism.” Yale ranked 5th.

The official statistics get released in September, when we will separate the wheat from the chaff. In the meantime…


1. Harvard U.
2. Columbia U.
3. U. of Pennsylvania
4. New York U.
5. Yale U.
5. U. of Virginia
7. U. of Texas at Austin

One response to “5th Place

  1. These are the Academic Analytics data, which have been posted on the Chronicle site for months. The Chronicle does not endorse these, though, in fact, they wrote an article about how they aren’t very useful.

    The NRC data, due out in September (after 15 years without an update), remains the gold standard. Let’s hope that Yale places at the top!
