The AA, LLC compiles and makes available The FSP Index and the Faculty Scholarly Productivity Database (FSP Database), a quantitative method for ranking doctoral programs at Research Universities. The FSP Index measures the scholarly productivity of faculty using their book and journal publications, journal article citations, federally-funded research grants, and honorific awards. The FSP Index and Database establishes, by academic field of study, a ranking based on the cumulative scoring of a program’s faculty members. The FSP Index and Database are the only completely quantitative measure of academic quality available to universities and other academic institutions.
