Abstract

Committee on Computing Qualifications (NACCQ) offer computing degrees and are under pressure to grow their “research cultures” in order to maintain their degree accreditation. The three authors have experienced this pressure in different ways: as heads of department, programme directors and research co-ordinators. In this paper they attempt to answer five research questions: • what patterns of growth/decay have been observed at three institutions of different sizes? • how has the balance between publication and presentation changed? • how has the balance between national and international changed? • how has the balance between conferences and journals changed? • what are the possible reasons for the observed changes?
