Professors of nursing and midwifery are recognized as discipline leaders and thus have a key role to play in the development of disciplinary knowledge, especially through their research activity. Watson and Thompson (2008) paraphrased the research and scholarship roles of the professoriate, from the UK National Conference of University Professors, as a requirement to “maintain individual authoritative industry in scholarship and research” (p 981).
This prompts us to ask: Are Australian nursing and midwifery professors leading the way in research? Mindful of the recent report on UK nursing professors’ citations and h‐indices (Watson, McDonagh, & Thompson, 2017), we examined the research outputs of Australian nursing and midwifery professors. We grouped the disciplines as research outputs are listed together in research performance assessments.
