    Aalto University’s tenure track career system offers a well-supported career path for professor-level academics. Since 2010, Aalto University has recruited over 300 professors on the tenure track. Bibliometric analyses have been an integrated part of Aalto University recruiting processes since 2011.

    The research question in this case study is to analyse to which extent do the bibliometric indicators explain the choice of the recruited professor.

    The analysis indicates that Aalto University has recruited young, talented and highly cited researchers to the tenure track positions. The recruited professors are slightly at the earlier phases of their scientific career.
