Title Where is the quality? Political science scholarship in Australia
Author Sharman, Jason Campbell; Weller, Patrick Moray
Journal Name Australian Journal of Political Science
Year Published 2009
Place of publication Australia
Publisher Routledge
Abstract This article presents a comparison of research quality in political science among Australian universities. Two sources are used to assess the output of high-quality political science scholarship. The first looks at publication totals in leading journals, using the hierarchy of journal quality from the Excellence in Research Australia program. The second counts Australian Research Council Discovery Grants awarded in political science. Although there is no attempt to present an authoritative master ranking, it is argued that common patterns do emerge regarding the distribution of high-quality political science research among different universities in Australia. More broadly, the data confirm earlier conclusions on the British or European character of the field in this country, despite the overwhelming dominance of the USA in political science worldwide.
