Academic inbreeding is the practice of academia of an institution hiring its own graduates as professors which is considered as an unhealthy and insular practice which might lead to overall degrade in the quality of research in the institution. Through our novel dataset, we will be aiming to provide proof to various hypotheses stating how excessive inbreeding can be bad for an institution. We will be dividing our data into 4 inbreed types namely 'Pure Inbreed', 'Mobile Inbreed', 'Silver Corded', and 'Non Inbreed'.  We will be using the Semantic Scholar open corpus dataset to further improve our data and provide deeper analysis about the negative effects of inbreeding.
