Refereed publications, together with funding from government agencies, industry and/or foundations provide prima facie evidence of the candidate's research accomplishments. The candidate is expected to have achieved a high level of scholarship, expertise and stature in his/her field as evident from a consistent record of refereed research publications, particularly of primary research, and successful research funding. We ask the candidate's department to seek out letters from impartial expert scientists who can evaluate the individual in question. (For details, see VII.A)

А вот в дивизии профессий:
The candidate's research, scholarship, and professional activities will be evaluated as to whether they are well-conceived and developed, and relevant and critical to the profession. These activities and products will also be evaluated with respect to their impact on and acceptance in the profession, as measured by dissemination in scholarly and professional journals and other appropriate media. The candidate's research, scholarly, and professional activities will also be assessed for evidence of continuing contribution.
