SUNY-ESF Earns High Marks for Scholarly Work

Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index

The SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) has been ranked among the nation’s top colleges and universities for scholarly work.

The ranking system, called the Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index, lists ESF fifth among college and universities in the category of “Specialized Research Universities — Applied Sciences.” ESF is also ranked eighth in the subcategory of “Fisheries Science and Management.”

“We’re pleased to be recognized for the scholarly activities that our faculty is involved in,” said Dr. Bruce C. Bongarten, ESF provost and vice president for academic affairs. “It highlights the work and the passion of the faculty and it places us among some other highly respected universities. This is a benchmark that shows the level of scholarly activity at ESF ranks well when compared with other high-quality institutions.”

The scholarly productivity index is partly financed by the State University of New York at Stony Brook and produced by Academic Analytics, a for-profit company,

The index rates faculty members' scholarly output at nearly 7,300 doctoral programs around the country. It examines the number of book and journal articles published by each program's faculty, as well as journal citations, awards, honors, and grants received.
