Academic Analytics have rated eight OSU disciplines in the top ten for faculty productivity, as noted in the Chronicle of Higher Education.
The number of professors in a program, the books and articles theyâ€™ve written, the number of times scholars have cited them, and the awards and grant funding theyâ€™ve received, were looked at in determining the rankings. OSU received more top ten designations than any other institution in Oregon.
OSU ranked second in fisheries science, fourth in zoology, fifth in forest resources and forestry, fifth in plant pathology, seventh in pharmacy, seventh in agricultural economics, and ninth in science education. Wildlife science received the top honor as first in the nation.
