  • Article


  • Authors: Jonathan P.; Drnevich, Paul L; Crook, T. Russell (2010-12)

We find that research adds significant value in that it can potentially enhance student salaries by up to $24,000 per year. However, we also observe that “excessive” research activity can lead to diminishing or e...
