Student Achievement & Success: Publication Rates

We track student publications primarily through the RAND publications database. This records all RAND publications that students authored or co-authored as well as publications in non-RAND peer-reviewed journals and other publications that they subsequently recorded in RAND’s database. A list of recent student-authored publications is maintained online.

The tables below provide data on the number of registered publications by students who have graduated from the program. The numbers reflect publications that students worked on while at Pardee RAND, but in some cases publication occurred after their exit date from the program.

Pardee RAND Air Force fellows are included in this data; note that these students are required to complete their Ph.D. within three years and often have lower rates of publication than other students not on this limited timeline.

Pardee RAND does not currently have a systematic way of collecting data on the publication records of our alumni after they have completed the their Ph.D.
