Open access article by Schneijderberg, Götze, Müller: "A study of 25 years of publication outputs in the German academic profession"
In their multi-level study the authors took a close look at the organisational, and discipline level and their respective relation to individual academics' publication behavior. On the organizational level, they observed that a strong HEI research performance orientation is positively correlated with journal articles, peer-reviewed publications, and co-publications with international co-authors. At the level of individual disciplines, humanities and social sciences scholars adapt to the peer-reviewed journal publication paradigm of the natural sciences at the expense of book publications.
