  • How many Journal Articles (in Completed/Published or Accepted status) does a particular faculty member have for Spring 2015 to Spring 2016?
  • How many Scholarly Activities (in Completed/Published or Accepted status) have an Activity Classification specified as Contributes to Engagement for Spring 2016?
