Ranking North American Urban Planning Scholars Using Google Scholar Citation Profiles

Inspired by Isidro Aguillo‘s ranking of scientists in Chile (see: http://www.webometrics.info/en/node/92), I prepared a ranking (by Hirsch Index) of urban planning faculty from schools in the U.S. and Canada. The list is based on the schools from my 2015 citation analysis and ranking (see: Planning Citation Analysis Update). Keep in mind this includes only planning faculty with Google Scholar Citation (GSC) profiles, where my 2015, 2014, and 2013 analyses included all planning faculty. Of the 1,000+ faculty, just over 400 had GSC profiles (as of November 30, 2016).

See Aguillo’s description of the Google Scholar Citation methodology at: http://www.webometrics.info/en/node/179.

My updated ranking for 2016 will be available during January 2017 on my website along with the searchable database at: http://scholarmetrics.com/. Your comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
