Benchmarking Analytics

In May, 2014 Elsevier gave us a month of trial subscription to their SciVal analytics program and database for "benchmarking". I have used that for comparisons of our productivity with our peer physics departments and with other departments at K-State (i.e. K-State in general).

Peer averaging is done with the following Physics departments:
Auburn, Clemson, Georgia State, Iowa State, Mississippi State, North Carolina State, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, University of Kansas, University of Missouri, and University of Oklahoma.

Exhibit I shows our scholarly output per faculty (the number of faculty data is taken from 2014 AIP Graduate Program book and thus a rough estimate for other years) compared with our peer average.

Exhibit II shows our citations per publication compared with our peer average while Exhibit III shows annual citation counts.
