In this paper, scientific productivity of academic institutions, research groups, and researchers in Sociology is measured by counting the numbers of scientific publications. We investigate whether the use of weight factors for length, quality, and multiple authorship has arty effect on productivity ranking. We conclude that this is not the case for length and multiple authorship, but that weighting for quality matters. At the level of academic institutions and research groups, this effect is largest for publications in the Dutch language; at the level of the individual author, weighting for quality has the strongest effect for articles in journals.
