After my recent post comparing citation totals and H-Indices for planning faculty with and without Google Scholar Citation Profiles (GS), I was asked what the comparison would look like by years of experience (i.e., years after receiving PhD). While not everyone takes a tenure track position immediately upon completion of their PhD, it should still be a good indicator of years of academic experience. Below are figures showing mean citations (Figure 1) and mean H-Index (Figure 2) by years.
