Abstract

This study examined the scholarly productivity of faculty in criminology/criminal justice programs. Using a sample comprising members from two major criminology/criminal justice associations, the research examined whether gender and race/ethnicity influenced scholarly productivity. In addition, the research explored whether the perceived importance of scholarly publications in influencing the discipline contributed to scholarly productivity. Similarly, the research also investigated whether the perceived impact of publications on policy-making influenced scholarly productivity. Multivariate analyses revealed differences in publication trends by gender and race/ethnicity, with males publishing more than females and Whites publishing more than non-Whites. The nuances of these findings show numerous additional differences regarding scholarly productivity by gender and race/ethnicity.
