Vanderbilt Leads In Special Education Research


Text Size  A  A

When it comes to finding the latest information on educating students with disabilities, Vanderbilt University and the University of Kansas are the places to turn.

Researchers at the institutions published more journal articles on special education between 2005 and 2009 than their peers at other universities across the country, according to a ranking out this month from Science Watch, which tracks research trends.

Vanderbilt University topped the list, followed by the University of Kansas, the University of Texas at Austin, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Louisiana State University.

The ranking was based on 4,222 papers published between 2005 and 2009 in special education journals indexed by Thomson Reuters.

Researchers at each of the universities listed in the top five contributed at least 85 studies over the five-year period.
