Abstract

Some researchers are more prolific than others. What do you think explains the differences between those who publish a great deal and those who publish less? Hancock, Lane, Ray, and Glennon surveyed researchers who published in Management Science and Operations Research. They compared those with high rates of publication to those with lower rates. They asked how these researchers spent their time, whether they enjoyed research, where they obtained support, what things interfered with their research, and how they selected research topics.
