John M. Budd, Charles A. Seavey

A widely held belief that academic librarians are strongly encouraged to publish in order to retain employment may exist. The present study examines authorship in thirty-six library and information science journals over a five-year period and finds that a small proportion of fouryear institutions is responsible for formal contributions to the literature. Furthermore, of those individuals contributing to the literature, the vast majority make only one contribution in the five-year period.
