UF Information Systems researchers ranked third in Western Hemisphere

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – A recent study published by the Pacific Asia Journal of the Association for Information Systems ranked the University of Florida the third-most productive in the North and South America region.

The study revealed the contributions and publications of academic scholars from 2003 to 2007 in the information system journals Decision Support Systems and Information and Management.

Productivity was measured by an adjusted count of publications produced. UF was third with 11.17 trailing only Arizona (1st, 17.47) and Penn State (2nd, 11.58).

Higdon Eminent Scholar Chair of Business Administration Dr. Gary J. Koehler tied for 17th (1.50) and American Economics Institutions Fellow Dr. Hsing K. (Kenny) Cheng tied for 31st (1.33).
