Is there an annual ranking of PhD programs in various fields like
there is for undergraduate and professional colleges? Please refer me
to any digital or written sources.

jason2k1 - thanks for your question.  A couple of clarifications would help:
1) Which disciplines are you interested in?  Would a ranking of
business phds suffice?
2) Does the ranking have to be annual?  What if it is an occassional study?

1. Ideally, as many disciplines as possible, but if you can only find
business, that would still be very helpful.
2. As long as it's recent, it does not have to be annual.

Here are two sources of information and rankings that should prove
helpful. The first covers all graduate programs; the second is a
premier source of information about business schools and programs.

I hope this helps.

I appreciate your attempt, but the first link deals only with
professional schools (MD, JD, MBA), and the second with MBAs. I am in
need of a ranking for PHDs (not MAs or MSs either).

Hi Jason,
Apparently the ball was in my court, to "clarify answer." Now that I
have hit the appropriate button, the question should "pop up" again,
and ragingacadmeic will be able to give you his findings. I hope.
Reason this answer was rejected by jason2k1-ga:
Researcher gave me wrong links. Another researcher has offered to
provide correct ones if I repost.

Gave me the wrong links; was nice about it though.

Jason - here are the phd rankings available online:

Sociology and Social Psychology

Business School Rankings, 3 multiyear groupings

(cached by Google - I'd recommend that you save to a local file before
it disappears)

Business School Phd Rankings by Discipline


Physics Ranking (scroll down some)

In addition, a couple of interesting resources:

Huge directory of business school rankings and info

2000 National Doctoral Program Survey

Let me know if you need additional help - if you post any new
questions, I'll appreciate if you direct your questions directly to me
- just add "for ragingacademic" to the subject line.

Jason, I have some great links for you, all Phd programs, cover
several disciplines including psychology, sociology, business (with
breakdown by segment e.g. marketing, finance etc.), physics and a
couple more.

Perhaps you could repost the question and note "for ragingacademic" in
the subject, and I'll pop my links in for you.

jason2k1 - I will be glad to post once I see the question pop back up;
would be best if you could direct it to me i.e. add "for
ragingacademic" in the subject line.

I am not sure how to change a subject line, but hopefully you can read this.
