A method for evaluating doctoral programs at Research Universities (both Carnegie Research Extensive and Research Intensive), based on a set of statistical algorithms developed by Lawrence Martin, PhD. The FSP Index measures the annual productivity of faculty on several factors including:
- Publications (books and journal articles)
- Citations of journal publications
- Federal Research Funding
- Awards and Honors
The FSP analysis creates, at the discipline level, a scale based on the cumulative scoring of a program's faculty using these measures compared against national standards. Each program can then be compared to the national mean z-score.
