2013 RHSU Edu-Scholar Top 10 Lists

Yesterday, we unveiled the 2013 RHSU Edu-Scholar rankings. For a lot of readers, the natural question is not how did scholars fare overall, but how are folks faring by field or discipline. After all, the nature of the work is different for the field of psychology versus the field of economics. Today, we will break out the top 10 lists for five disciplinary categories, as well as the top 10 assistant professors.

Now, there's a touch of ambiguity in determining the fields of study. Generally, my uber-competent research assistant Allie Kimmel worked off of CV's, relying primarily on a scholar's degree discipline and self-identified field. Only when these were sufficiently ambiguous did we seek to make determinations. In the cases where we were compelled to rely on judgment, we looked to scholarly appointments and bodies of work.

I also want to give a shout-out to assistant professors who scored especially well. Given that the Edu-Scholar rankings, by design, favor scholars who've bodies of work and sustained influence, these junior faculty deserve particular note for making the (rarely rewarded) effort to engage in the public square. Harvard's Marty West topped the junior faculty league table, assisted by his prominent role with the Romney campaign. Other assistant profs rounding out the top five included Marcus Winters, Arnie Shober, Jal Mehta, and Mary Helen Immordino-Yang.
