The Academic Analytics Database contains comparative data on over 400,000 faculty members, associated with more than 10,000 Ph.D. programs and 12,000 departments at 470 universities in the United States and abroad. Data are aggregated and matched to individual faculty members in nine areas of research activity: book publications, journal article publications, journal article citations, published conference proceedings, federal research grants, professional honorific awards, U.S. patents, clinical trials, and book chapters.

Academic Analytics Database faculty names are compiled via two sources: direct university submissions of faculty rosters, and harvesting from online directories, graduate bulletins, and other resources available within an institution’s website. Both processes are followed by a careful quality assurance procedure to ensure that lists of faculty are accurate and reflect the academic year for which we are compiling data.

We encourage subscribers to let us know when they think there is an error in the database. Please forward a description of what you believe is incorrect to your dedicated Academic Analytics Liaison or send an email to our Help Desk (
