The Measurement of Publication Outputs in the Six Universities in Hong Kong
Universities in Hong Kong have been under rapid change after entering the last decade of this century. Academics are urged to have more research outputs besides their teaching. This article investigated the developmental trend of publication outputs among these universities. Data were collected from the annual reports of research and publication outputs of these universities. In order to have a fair comparison of publication outputs of each academic, department, faculty and institution, the author developed a framework from practical experience and literature to investigate the problem. Results indicated that the publication outputs of academics in Hong Kong were about the same as those in other countries. However, pressing faculty too hard for research publications would not necessarily raise output immediately.
