Twenty-five core journals in the field of library and information science published in 1985 were examined to determine institutional affiliation of authors and their use of descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. Of the 915 articles studied, it was found that academic librarians published more research but relied on descriptive statistics, whereas library school faculty published less, but made more use of inferential statistics.
