This study investigates educational research productivity in institutions of higher education in the United States based on contributions to AERA annual meetings and 14 leading educational research journals over a 7-year period: 1975-1981. Data were analyzed along two dimensions: total productivity and faculty productivity. Total volume productivity has an impact on the field regardless of faculty size; faculty productivity emphasizes the strengths of institutional research activity. Both dimensions were combined in a third ranking to reflect the contributions of both dimensions. In addition, institutions were ranked on the basis of percentage of change in research productivity between the years 1975-1976 and 1980-1981.
