Note: definitions in footnotes below refer to the meaning of “publications,” “grants,” and “recognition” throughout Table 1 A.

1Publications include papers in peer-reviewed journals of recognized quality, books, and book chapters. Evaluation of publication record will include an assessment of quality and impact on the field as well as quantity. Papers of exceptional length, impact, and quality are given particular consideration.

2“Grants” refers to extramural funding wherein the role of the Faculty member in securing the funding is clearly demonstrated and which are of sufficient magnitude to fully support research at a level and duration appropriate for the discipline, including funds for supplies, materials, and personnel (graduate students, research technicians, and/or post-doctoral associates). For NIH grants, this includes R01s, AREA grants, and others of sufficient magnitude as described herein. “Seed Grants” are extramural grants that are not of sufficient magnitude to fully support doctoral students or are intramural grants. "Seed Grants" should be designed to lead to successful applications for “Grants.” Grantsmanship should be commensurate with the field of research with the recognition that the dollar amount of awards varies among fields.

3Recognitions from scientific societies include, for example, election to office, editorial board membership, editorship, etc.  Service to federal/state institutions includes service on federal proposal panels, site visits, and other research related activities.
