The three charts demonstrate many academic journal articles are read each week by all students at at an American university compared to just the PHD students junior lecturers at the same institution.
, 12 articles per week are read by the vast majority of people studying for doctorates in comparison with the average student. The proportions are 80% and 12% . , on average 67% of all students read 1-5 articles, for PhD students this figure is only 5%.
, for junior lecturers this pattern appears to be a little different. 6 or more articles a week are read by an overwhelming 99% of junior lecturers, out of this group 24% read 12 or more articles, is almost a third of the corresponding figure for PhD level students.
It is obvious from the charts PhD level students read far more articles than either junior lecturers or the average student.
