Of course, university departments have wider responsibilities than research (Coronini and Mangematin 1999).
See Lee (2010) for a discussion of alternative concentration measures.
A search on HHI in abstracts of papers published in Scientometrics returned one paper on research performance (Yang et al. 2010).
de Witte and Rogge (2010) introduce a metric for publication efficiency which combines individual and environmental characteristics.
(1) follows from the recursive property of averages:
Note that in the definition of the Shapley value actors are not evaluated relative to an existing coalition structure. This is another reason why the proposed measure is a pseudo-Shapley value.
This is intuitively clear, but notationally messy. I therefore skip the formalization. The computations are illustrated in the “Appendix” section.
There are also a number of business schools that only teach. These are excluded from the current study.
For instance, Publish and Perish returns over 500 papers for the current author, whose CV counts less than 200 publications.
I am grateful to all who helped to improve the database by checking their entries. I had useful discussions on this subject with Frances Ruane. An anonymous referee had excellent comments.
