Some of R. G. Donnelly's writing about the profession

"A view of mathematics research productivity at U.S. regional public universities," July 12, 2009, 26 pp, PDF.
Also available on the arXiv as 0811.2759, 26 pp.

Statistical summaries of certain kinds of mathematics research output are given for a large sample of U.S. regional public universities. These statistical summaries are reported using a variety of metrics that distinguish between single-authored and collaborative work and account for publication length.
