The Division of Management Information needs a database that includes faculty publications, citations, grants, and honorific awards for all major research universities in the United States, with the data to be tied to unique faculty identifiers. The program provides productivity assessment at the level of individual faculty members, allows aggregation at disciplinary levels or for interdisciplinary clusters, and expands the range of institutions included in the data set. The data base provides overall university performance comparing at discipline-by-discipline level.
