Main findings are as follows: (1) In books, groups who have a high level of productivity are researchers who; a) are in their sixties, b) garaduated from Tokyo University, c) hold a doctorate in literature, d) belong to national universities which hold the doctoral-course, e) are professors, f) have more than 10 articles and g) have a "mean number of authors per book" of 21. In articles, groups who have a high level of productivity are researchers who; a) are in forties, b) garaduated from Tokyo Univ. and universities which are famous for Japanese Literature, c) hold a doctorate in literature, d) belong to national universities which hold the doctoral course, e) are associate professors and f) have more than 6 books published. (2) As a result of the Quantification Theory I with these foctors, "mean number of authors per book" have the most influence on book productivity. But any factors do not have much influence on article productivity.
