Final word on Journal quality It is better to publish one paper in a quality journal than multiple papers in lesser journals. [...]. Try to publish in journals that have high impact factors; chances are your paper will have high impact, too, if accepted. Bourne, P. E. (2005). Ten Simple Rules for Getting Published. PLoS Comput Biol 1(5): e57 .
Internal cooperation NOWT (2008). Wetenschaps- en Technologie- Indicatoren 2008 . Maastricht, Nederlands Observatorium van Wetenschap en Technologie (NOWT).
Cooperation is rewarding NOWT (2010). Wetenschaps- en Technologie- Indicatoren 2010 . Maastricht, Nederlands Observatorium van Wetenschap en Technologie (NOWT).
Cooperation... Wuchty, S., B. F. Jones , et al. (2007). The increasing dominance of teams in production of knowledge. Science 316(5827): 1036-1039. Teams increasingly dominate solo authors in the production of knowledge. Research is increasingly done in teams across nearly all fields. Teams typically produce more frequently cited research than individuals do, and this advantage has been increasing over time. Teams now also produce the exceptionally high-impact research, even where that distinction was once the domain of solo authors.
Self citations The model [...] implies that external citations are enhanced by self-citations, so that we have the “chain reaction:” Larger size leads to more self-citations, which lead to more external citations. 11/28 van Raan, A. F. J. (2008). Self-citation as an impact-reinforcing mechanism in the science system. Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology 59(10): 1631-1643.
