Retrieved 20:19, Nov 25, 2015 (GMT)


Age distribution (years since PhD) of 116 marine scientists who are active on twitter. The majority of scientists are academically young, having obtained their PhD degrees less than 5 years ago; however, more experienced scientists also tweet.

  • Does this figure make sense if it is not normalized for the number of scientists per age category? I would expect a figure like this for any scientific communication channel, simply because the number of people still in science with academic age. Or did you sample among all people that ever got a PhD in marine science, including those not a "marine scientist" anymore?
