7.7.3 Other norm scores
On my website, I invite academics to submit norm scores for reference groups in their own sub-discipline with a short description of their search parameters. I would suggest that comparison groups need to include at least 10 academics (and preferably more) to avoid idiosyncrasies. If I am confident that the searches have been done competently, I will post them on my website with attribution to the person who has compiled them. Please submit your results to email@example.com.
Below is a list of norm scores that has been submitted so far. Although I have done a “sanity check” for each of these papers, the ultimate responsibility lies with the authors. Please contact the individual authors if you have any questions about the paper in question.
- Research Performance of Senior Level Marketing Academics in the Australian Universities: An Exploratory Study Based on Citation Analysis, a paper by Mohammed A. Razzaque and Ian F. Wilkinson, presented at the Australia New Zealand Marketing Academy Conference (ANZMAC), University of Otago, New Zealand, Dec 1-3 2007.
- Citation Benchmarks for Articles Published by Australian Marketing Academics, a paper by Geoff Soutar, In M. Thyne, K. R. Deans and J. Gnoth (eds.), Conference Proceedings of the 2007 ANZMAC Conference. Dunedin: Department of Marketing, University of Otago, 3515-3520.
- Measuring the research contribution of management academics using the Hirsch-index by John Mingers, published in Journal of the Operational Research Society, applies the h-index to three groups of management scholars: BAM fellows, INFORMS fellows and members of COPIOR.
- Cumulative and career-stage citation impact of social-personality programs and their members by Brian Nosek and co-authors provides benchmarks for evaluating impact across the career span in psychology, and other disciplines with similar citation patterns. In press for Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin. Supplementary page with career-stage impact calculators: http://projectimplicit.net/nosek/papers/citations/
- In Characterizing author citation ratings of herpetologists using Harzing's Publish or Perish Malcolm L. McCallum analyzed a random sample of herpetologists. He used linear regression to analyze the influence of career length and publication count on their h-score, g-score, e-score, and m-quotient and provides mean scores for each author metric for herpetologists at various career lengths.
