Impact Factor is a seminar series where we will explore what research universities do… for example, what’s expected of their faculty, what sort of changes we could expect if we became a research university, and so forth.
How far can assistant and associate professors at Texas State University, who want to be tenured and advance in rank; how far can they go when they publish in non-traditional venues? How much risk can an assistant or associate professor assume if he or she wants to reach wider audiences than just the audiences of narrowly focused and highly technical academic journals? When does non-traditional publishing push the bounds of what’s acceptable in an academic, tenure-driven environment? Find out in this episode.
What would Texas State be like if it became a research university? How would things change? What would the Texas State University Regents expect of our faculty? This seminar series is designed to answer those questions. And to do this, we’ll bring you one seminar each month during the fall semester. Welcome to Impact Factor.
