A study was conducted to quantify both the output and the impact of the past
decade's scholarly research carried out by those academics currently
employed by Canadian business schools, using paper counts and citation
analysis.  The study found that the per capita paper output in Canadian
business schools is relatively low and is declining.  There are significant
differences between Canadian business schools, and the paper and citation
credits are highly variable with a few "stars" producing most of the impact.
The data and the results are tabulated on a web site which also contains a
link to a brief article describing the study

Feedback is welcome.
