Summer 2024 Urban Planning Citation Update

The updated citation data have just been posted at ScholarMetrics. Thanks to those of you who provided corrections, updates, and other faculty information. As mentioned before, there is no (easy) way to provide real-time updates due to Google Scholar limitations. I scrape Google Scholar Profiles for faculty who maintain them (about 800 of you) and then I use Harzing’s Publish or Perish to search publications and metrics for those who don’t have profiles (about 250). There is a lot of manual work involved so I’m only able to provide updates twice a year. Usually after I post updates I’ll receive several corrections which take a couple of weeks to clean up. A common question I get is about who is included. I try to only include active, full-time, tenure-track faculty because program comparisons are meant to reflect current faculty activities for assistant, associate, and full professors. This means adjuncts, retired, emeritus, lecturers, etc. are not included because the expectations for scholarly productivity are not the same as for current, tenure or tenure-track faculty. Links to previous years and more background are provided at Scholarmetrics. Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions at:
