Academic Analytics Research Center facilitates knowledge production by providing our rich datasets to researchers interested in incorporating these data into their projects. Examples of topics addressed by AARC staff and external research groups include: the impact of state legislation on professorial promotions and hires; gender disparities in scientometric data; how best to estimate grant expenditures at peer institutions; and the longitudinal impact of federal research funding on scholarly outputs such as journal articles and conference proceedings.
