This web page provides statistics for per capita productivity of business schools in 24 leading journals covered by the University of Texas Dallas Top 100 Business School Research Rankings in 2015–2018. (Please see list below). 

The UTD rankings measure total output not correcting for tenure-track faculty size. In order to understand differences among schools in average productivity of the faculty,  we produced a set of “per-capita” publication statistics for the top 100 schools in the UTD rankings. First, we used a method emulating UTD to obtain a total score for school X. We then divided that score by the number of tenure-track faculty listed on the school’s website in spring of 2018. 

We provide per-capita rankings using two different methods to count the number of tenure-track faculty in the denominator of the ratio score/number of tenure-track faculty.

DATA: The UTD "score" in column E comes from the UTD website. UTD counts number of papers in those top journals. For each paper, UTD divides credit among the authors. So if a paper has two authors, one from school X, school X gets 0.5 added to its UTD score. In column H, score/number of faculty simply divides the UTD score in column E by the number of faculty in column G. Please see the "Faculty Count" tab for the number of faculty for each school. Faculty counts are from current websites. If a school has fewer faculty now than in the reference period, it "helps" the school's per-capita ranking because faculty who left still contribute papers for the numerator UTD score but not the denominator. If a school has more faculty now than in the reference period, it "hurts" the school's per-capita ranking because new faculty's papers are not included in the school's UTD score but are included in the denominator.

DATA: Data was pulled from UT Dallas for the following journals: Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Enconomics, and The Review of Financial Studies from 2015–2018 for the world rankings as of October 8th, 2018. The UTD "score" in column E comes from the UTD website. UTD counts number of papers in those top journals. For each paper, UTD divides credit among the authors. So if a paper has two authors, one from school X, school X gets 0.5 added to its UTD score. In column H, score/number of faculty simply divides the UTD score in column E by the number of faculty in column G. Please see the "Faculty Count" tab for the number of faculty for each school. Faculty counts are from current websites. If a school has fewer faculty now than in the reference period, it "helps" the school's per-capita ranking because faculty who left still contribute papers for the numerator UTD score but not  the denominator. If a school has more faculty now than in reference period, it "hurts" the school's per-capita ranking because new faculty's papers are not included in the school's UTD score but are included in the denominator.

Methodology

These per-capita statistics require explanation of both the numerator and denominator. The numerator follows UTD in crediting a school with a publication by author affiliation in a given time window. For example, if a school published 10 single-authored papers in a window, the score would be 10. If there are multiple authors from different schools on a given paper, credit is apportioned equally among the coauthors.  Please see: http://jindal.utdallas.edu/the-utd-top-100-business-school-research-rankings/  If a professor moves from one school to another, their publications at the prior school in the relevant time window are credited to the school of affiliation at the time of publication.

We obtained faculty counts of tenure-track faculty from each school’s current website. If the website made that difficult, we verified via AACSB data. We emailed each school with our counts and made corrections if required. Note that if a school increased in faculty size since the time interval in which productivity was measured, the school’s per-capita ranking will be slightly deflated, and if a school decreased in faculty size since the time interval in which productivity was measured, the school’s per-capita ranking will be slightly inflated.
