CRIMINAL JUSTICE FACULTY RANK HIGH IN PUBLISHING PRODUCTIVITY

In a new study of academic productivity, Old Dominion University's criminal justice program ranked high in terms of publishing in top criminology and criminal justice journals.

The study, performed by the University of Cincinnati's Division of Criminal Justice, ranked Brian K. Payne, chair and professor of sociology and criminal justice, fifth among those whose work is published in top journals on criminology and criminal justice. Old Dominion's criminal justice program ranked 11th in the overall standing.

"With more than 1,000 criminal justice programs across the United States, being ranked 11th is certainly something to be proud of," Payne said of ODU's status.

The study examined articles written by faculty from 1995 through 2006. The top 10 universities were: Maryland, Cincinnati, Pennsylvania State, Florida, SUNY-Albany, Michigan State, Northwestern, Missouri-St.Louis, Arizona State, Nebraska-Omaha.
