Academic Analytics Research Center (AARC) Call for Proposals
January 21, 2020
Academic Analytics is pleased to announce the formation of the Academic Analytics Research Center (AARC). AARC is tasked with finding ways the Academic Analytics database can be applied to uncover and disseminate new data and findings on issues of concern to higher education and scholarly research. In addition to publishing original research, AARC also places the Academic Analytics database into the hands of other qualified researchers. From gender disparities in publishing and citations to the lifetime trajectory of faculty research activity in different fields of study, the Academic Analytics database is a rich resource for scholars seeking comprehensive information on research in higher education.
AARC will act as the sole point of contact for any researcher wishing to access the Academic Analytics database and will receive and review all research proposals involving Academic Analytics data. The Academic Analytics Research Center hereby announces a Request for Proposals for a scholarly research project using academic analytics data. The objective of this Request for Proposal is to locate scholars who will provide significant and publishable research projects using the Academic Analytics database, and to support those scholars with data at no cost. The full Request for Proposals can be downloaded here (PDF).

Academic Analytics Research Center (AARC) scholars William E. Savage, Ph.D. and Anthony J. Olejniczak, Ph.D. recently posted a preprint of their research on SocArXiv. The preprint, Research publication productivity among senior faculty at Ph.D.-granting institutions in the United States, documents the publishing patterns of early career, mid-career, and senior scholars in terms of books, book chapters, journal articles, and conference proceedings. Results show that rather than the commonly cited “peak-and-decline” model of career publishing patterns, senior scholars shift their focus away from journal articles and conference proceedings and focus on publishing books and chapters. To learn more please check out the preprint and feel free to offer any suggestions on the study as the authors prepare the manuscript for peer review: https://osf.io/preprints/socarxiv/vznty/
Collaborations with other disciplines most often involves researchers in Molecular Biology where they account for 6.1% of all co-authored journal publications. The next frequent collaborative fi eld, Biochemistry, accounts for 5.8% of all co-authored journal articles in CELL BIOLOGY. Do you know who are the top potential collaborators in these fields that best complement your research and where they are located?
According to the data captured in the Academic Analytics database, 31.5% of Cell Biology faculty have received a national honorific award. The American Association for the Advancement of Science provides the most honorific awards for the discipline, accounting for 11.3% of all recorded awards. Of the faculty population for whom we have been able to identify gender, the distribution of awards granted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science is 73% of awards going to male scholars and 27% going to female scholars.
