Scholarly productivity of 166 American Psychological Association–accredited clinical psychology PhD programs was measured to provide objective, normative data. Publications were tallied over a five-year period (2000–2004) for individual faculty members from PsycINFO entries. Scholarly productivity profiles are provided for each program, including total number of publications, mean number of publications per faculty member, and total publications by publication type. A moderate relationship was found between U.S. News & World Report rankings and rankings of scholarly productivity (rS = .57–.64). Correlations of program size and number of publications suggest that larger programs tend to produce more total publications; however, having more faculty members did not correlate with a higher mean or median publication rate per individual.
