The MPACT Project

The MPACT Project is an academic genealogy project devoted to defining and assessing mentoring as a scholarly activity, examining the emergence and interaction of disciplines, and identifying patterns of knowledge diffusion. MPACT is a joint project between Indiana University Bloomington and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

The current focus of the project is on collecting dissertation data from a wide variety of disciplines and institutions. We invite the participation of others to augment and utilize the MPACT database to develop new metrics and theory, rooted in academic genealogy.
