PUBLISH AND CHERISH

In March 2011 I carried out a research project to assess the output of the Social Sciences at the University of Amsterdam, in comparison to other UvA faculties, and to other Sectors within the Faculty of Social and Behavioral Sciences. I used data of 2009 for this.
Results:
- FMG scores higher than most other faculties on indicators such as number of publications per fte and external funding per fte.
- Social Sciences does at least as good as other sectors (if not better) with regard to publications and funding.
