Preliminary Survey Results

Methodology l.jpg
Methodology

  • Letter sent to 565 Anthropology department chairs across the U.S. requesting that they complete a questionnaire online.

  • Collected 226 total responses (n=226).

  • Questions gathered information on institutions and departments, tenure requirements, and journal quality.










What kind of changes have taken place in your institution department over the last academic year l.jpg
What kind of changes have taken place in your institution/department over the last academic year?


Tenure requirements l.jpg
Tenure Requirements institution/department over the last academic year?



Slide14 l.jpg

If your department is a JOINT department, are there different requirements or expectations for the different disciplines WITHIN the department?


Specific differences verbatims l.jpg
Specific differences (“verbatims”) different requirements or expectations for the different disciplines WITHIN the department?

  • [Institution withheld] does not offer tenure, so these questions do not apply.

  • In the archaeology component of Anthropology, peer-reviewed research reports/monographs (as opposed to journal articles) are given weight in evaluating scholarship.

  • Teaching assignment is higher for programs without a grad program. Research expectations vary among programs based on acceptable publication standards. Service requirement is higher in the social work program.

  • The work of applied colleagues is counted differently -- for example, site reports and museum exhibition catalogues can count as peer-reviewed publications.

  • Sort of. We have to explain the importance of monographs for cultural anthropologists and archaeologists.

  • Different expectations for scholarly achievement, established by each major.

  • We are now in process of developing these for each program.


Specific differences verbatims cont d l.jpg
Specific differences (“verbatims”) cont’d different requirements or expectations for the different disciplines WITHIN the department?

  • They are similar but not identical in emphasis on research expectations.

  • The social work component, recently added, will have some slightly different requirements from those of the sociologists and Anthropologists, which are more or less identical.

  • General expectations are similar, but there are two T&P sets of more specific guidelines.

  • Some faculty hold joint appts, and they must satisfy requirements in each of their departments.

  • Differences in expectations on publication (more for Anthro than Social Work) and service (more for Social Work than Anthro).

  • Each discipline has their own requirements; they are specific to that discipline and developed by members of that discipline. We function pretty autonomously for a combo dept.

  • Sociology has a graduate program, Anthropology does not. So there are different expectations as a result.

  • Anthropologists not publishing from existing research are expected to seek funding for ethnographic research.


How specific are your department s tenure requirements l.jpg
How specific are your department’s tenure requirements? different requirements or expectations for the different disciplines WITHIN the department?


Who is responsible for developing these requirements expectations check all that apply l.jpg
Who is responsible for developing these requirements/expectations (check all that apply)?*

* Sum of percentages may be greater than 100% since respondents may answer more than once.


Slide19 l.jpg
When are these requirements/expectations relayed to faculty preparing for tenure review (check all that apply)?*

* Sum of percentages may be greater than 100% since respondents may answer more than once.


How do faculty members learn about tenure expectations at your institution select all that apply l.jpg
How do faculty members learn about tenure expectations at your institution (select all that apply)?


Slide21 l.jpg
Does your department conduct a formal pre-tenure review for faculty to assess their progress towards tenure?

* Sum of percentages may be greater than 100% since respondents may answer more than once.


Slide22 l.jpg
Were any full-time faculty or instructional staff considered for tenure in the past three years (academic years 2005-06 to 2007-08)?


Slide23 l.jpg

Have any department tenure recommendations been reversed by an entity external to the department (Dean, College Committee, University Committee, Provost, other)?


Rating of importance for tenure research publication and other scholarly scientific production l.jpg
Rating of importance for tenure: Research, publication and other scholarly/scientific production)


Rating of importance for tenure service l.jpg

Rating of importance for tenure teaching l.jpg

Ranking research service teaching in terms of importance l.jpg
Ranking Research, Service & Teaching in terms of importance other scholarly/scientific production)

  • Among respondents in free-standing departments

    • 74% said Research is 1st important

    • 60% said Teaching is 2nd important

    • 77% said Service is 3rd important

  • Among respondents in joint departments

    • 36% said Research is 1st important

    • 31% said Teaching is 2nd important

    • 64% said Service is 3rd important


  • Weighted importance ratings of alternative scholarly contributions l.jpg
    Weighted importance ratings of alternative scholarly contributions*

    * Very important = 9, Somewhat important = 6, Moderately important = 3, Not important = 1.


    Weighted importance ratings of alternative types of service l.jpg
    Weighted importance ratings of alternative types of service* contributions*

    * Very important = 9, Somewhat important = 6, Moderately important = 3, Not important = 1.

    Slide32 l.jpg
    Thinking about publishing in Journals, does your department have defined "rankings" or values for publications?


    Are the journal rankings available l.jpg
