July 3, 2003 (Lexington, Ky.) -- The Educational Psychology Program in the University of Kentucky College of Education has been ranked 19th among peer programs at 342 national and international institutions for research productivity, a study in the latest issue of Contemporary Educational Psychology states.

The scholarly journal examined the authorship of research articles published from 1997 through 2001 in the five leading educational psychology journals: Journal of Educational Psychology, Cognition & Instruction, Educational Psychologist, Contemporary Educational Psychology, and Educational Psychology Review.

In all, 699 educational psychology articles written by 1,228 researchers were examined.

Among the 342 institutions ranked in the survey, UK rated higher than Yale University, University of Texas at Austin, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Notre Dame, and Columbia University.

A similar productivity study conducted in 1996, which reviewed the time period from 1991 to 1996, ranked UK 23rd.

“This survey is an excellent testament to both the quality and quantity of research being conducted here at the UK College of Education,” said James G. Cibulka, dean of the College of Education. “It is representative of our dedication to contribute new knowledge in all fields of education and is reflective of our collaborative work with colleagues across the country.”
