Abstract

Previous research examining the scientific stature of counseling psychology training programs has not attended to emerging methodological issues. Two databases (PsycLIT from 1974 to June of 1991 and the Social Science Citation Index [SSCI] from 1971 to 1991) provided publication and citation frequencies for all 488 counseling psychology faculty affiliated with all 68 currently active doctoral programs. Grand total scores from these databases were determined and then adjusted on the basis of faculty size alone, faculty age alone, and faculty size and age combined. An additional stability correction was derived by deleting the record of the most prolific (PsycLIT) or cited (SSCI) faculty member from the total scores of each program. The leading programs identified on the basis of the 11 adjusted and unadjusted measures of scientific stature are presented. An r of 0.70 between PsycLIT and SSCI was found.
