Real Estate Programs: A Note on Publication Performance

Authors

Abstract

This study reports the publication performance of academic programs in real estate and authors using a database drawn from ten major real estate journals (868 articles by 577 authors from 206 universities) published during the period 1978 through 1982. Universities and authors are classified into ranked clusters using hierarchical cluster analysis of standardized pages published in the set of journals examined. Omitting publications whose author(s) are affiliated with the university that edits the journal in which the publication appears (the editorship effect) significantly drops the ranking of all but one of these universities, suggesting that editorship of a journal greatly enhances the publication performance of most universities.
