We seek to describe the culture of scholarly communication at IUPUI with a focus on the types of evidence used to demonstrate scholarly impact. Scholarly communication refers to the ways in which “scholarly writings are created, evaluated for quality, disseminated to the scholarly community and preserved for future use” (Association of College & Research Libraries, 2003).
This study will examine successful promotion and tenure (P&T) dossiers with three aims:
1. To quantify the adoption of open access publishing practices as reported in successful promotion and tenure dossiers at IUPUI;
2. To quantify reporting by tenure-track faculty of citation-based, web-based, and alternative metrics to demonstrate the impact of their scholarship;
3. To describe how faculty gather and report evidence demonstrating the impact of their scholarship.
To conduct this content analysis of successful P&T dossiers, we will analyze the following dossier sections: Candidate’s Statement, Teaching/Performance, Research & Creative Activity/Professional Development, Professional & University Service/Service, and Assessment/Curriculum Vitae.
