Research is described aimed at developing a benchmarking system for University Schools of Construction Management. This follows a standard empirical approach in soliciting views and requirements from a group of stakeholders comprising the Australasian Universities Building Education Association Heads of Schools. These views were analysed and consolidated into a set of 34 benchmarks and associated likely data sources. Following a pilot study investigating the data collection logistics involved, these were reduced down to a set of 20 tables capable of being produced by each participant over a reasonably short period. As a result, the stage has now been reached where the tables have been completed by several of the participants for consolidation into a benchmark publication.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
