Missouri University of Science and Technology has one of the most productive
research levels among universities that specialize in science, technology,
engineering and mathematics, according to a recent study by Academic Analytics
of Stony Brook, N.Y.
Missouri S&T is ranked 14th among the nation’s specialized “STEM”
(science, technology, engineering and mathematics) universities in Academic
Analytics’ 2006-07 Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index. The index evaluates
doctoral programs at research universities by evaluating the number of research
publications (books and journal articles) by an institution’s faculty,
citations of journal publications, federal research funding, and
research-related awards and honors.
Academic Analytics is a for-profit company owned by the State University of
New York at Stony Brook and Educational Directories Unlimited Inc.
Because the index is for the 2006-2007 year, Missouri S&T is listed in
the rankings under its former name, the University of Missouri-Rolla. The
university’s name changed on Jan. 1, 2008.
Academic Analytics also ranked large, comprehensive universities, small
universities, and specialized universities in biomedical health sciences,
business, education and social sciences, and theology.
