The Book as the Gold Standard for Tenure and Promotion in the Humanistic Disciplines

With funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) conducted a study (June-November, 2003) to determine the extent to which publication of a scholarly monograph is essential for faculty to receive tenure in the humanistic disciplines.  Further, it sought to understand whether faculty members and their department chairs are open to change of their promotion and tenure standards.  The research was carried out by the Library Research Center at the University of Illinois and directed by Leigh Estabrook.  It included surveys and focus groups of faculty in Anthropology, History, and English at CIC institutions; telephone interviews of department chairs in six of the CIC universities; and a survey of faculty who left before receiving tenure in these departments.
