The Measurement of Publication Outputs in the Six Universities in Hong Kong

Kwok-Keung HO(賀國強)

Abstract

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.

摘要

進入二十世紀最後的十年,香港各大學正面臨急速的轉變,其中的學者們不單要教學,且要有更多的研究成果。本文探尋本港各大學的學者們所發表著作的趨勢,資料來源主要是出自各大學每年出版有關其本身各學者的研究及著作概覽。為著能對各學者、院系及大學發表的著述作一個公平有系統的比較,筆者從文獻及其經驗中制訂了一個計算研究著作成果的方法,從而列出香港各大學各學院及各等級的學者們的著作成果,發覺本港學者們在這方面的成就與外國沒有多大分別,而且從上而下壓力不一定能即時提高著作的成果。
