    35. 35. The impact factor Matthew effect "The journal in which papers are published have a strong influence on their citation rates, as duplicate papers published in high-impact journals obtain, on average, twice as many citations as their identical counterparts published in journals with lower impact factors" Larivière, V. and Y. Gingras (2010). The impact factor's Matthew Effect: A natural experiment in bibliometrics.

Where you publish matters most: A multilevel analysis of factors affecting citations of internet studies.

    37. 37. Final word on journal quality "It is better to publish one paper in a quality journal than multiple papers in lesser journals. [...].

    60. 60. More articles per research project?  Publishing more articles results in higher citation counts if the articles provide sufficient substantive content to other researchers. ● Beware of the ethical standards ● Bornmann looked at total citations, not to relative impact Bornmann, L. & H.-D.

    66. 66. Sharing data increases impact "Publicly available data was significantly associated with a 69% increase in citations, independently of journal impact factor, date of publication, and author country of origin" Piwowar, H.
