Late retirement, early careers, and the aging of U.S. science and engineering professors
TLDR
This work postulates that the decline in the retirement rate in academia contributes to the aging pattern through two mechanisms: (a) direct effect: longer stay of established professors, and (b) indirect effect: a hiring decline in tenure-track positions. Expand
Possible economic benefits of full-grade acceleration.
TLDR
A conservative estimate is that there is a $72,000 lifetime earnings difference between accelerated and non-accelerated subjects, though this study cannot show a causal association between acceleration and increased income. Expand

Gender and the h index in psychology
TLDR
It is concluded that the h index, like many other metrics, may reflect systematic gender differences in academia, and it is suggested to use caution when relying on this metric to promote and reward academic psychologists. Expand
