UK and Ireland Planning Faculty Citations

*** Update 4/10/2020 ***

Thanks to Alasdair Rae for providing updated faculty roster information for the University of Sheffield. I managed to miss several of their faculty and have added them to the table below.


I recently collected Google Scholar Citation Profile data for UK and Ireland planning faculty to make comparisons with U.S. and Canada planning faculty. As it turns out, of approximately 600 faculty from 22 schools (schools listed by the Royal Town Planning Institute), only around 40 UK faculty (6.7%) have GS profiles (compared to nearly 60% for U.S./Canada faculty). Due to the lack of comparable data I decided to only list what I could find, without analysis or comparison.
