2018 in numbers
As a follow-up to last year’s post, a quick personal note on my scholar profile. As of now, second week of January 2019, my publications reached ~1400 citations according to Google scholar (vs. ~1000 at this time last year/ 700 two years ago/ 500 three years ago). Google scholar currently lists 60 publications (vs. 53 last year, most peer-reviewed), and one US patent. Our first GPS paper currently has 257 cites. My h-index has increased to 19 (from 15), my i10-index is currently 32, from 18 last year.
Semantic scholar stopped listing citation numbers for profiles. They still indicate how many papers were strongly influenced by my work (69), compared to 54 in previous year.
Scopus lists generally lower numbers (e.g. only 49 publications, ~683 citations), but they provide a number of co-authors: 106 (66 last year).
Other numbers for 2018: Github lists 96 commits to repositories (after 500 in 2017), as we shifted most collaborations to use Overleaf (and I don’t develop for NSE any more). I received 5,898+1,319=7217 mails on my university accounts (after removal of spam). Per working day, that would make around 36 (previous years: 64) mails. I sent 1,240+498=1738 mails (~9 per working day, last year 19). Both numbers are around half of my 2016-2015 statistics. This is likely due to my transition to CISPA, during which I lost access to the old account (and the end of major projects such as the NSE).
