Researchers in a variety of academic fields often debate the relative merits and drawbacks of pursuing frequent publications. This paper, authored by Ulf Sandstrom of the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden and Peter van den Besselaar of the Network Institute & Institute for Social Resilience in the Netherlands, explores this debate by comparing the number of publications and the number of scholarly citations of 48 Swedish researchers over the course of three years. The authors examine publications in a variety of fields, including Computer Science/Mathematics, Humanities, Sociology, and more. Based on this investigation, the authors conclude that "quantity [of publications] does make a difference."
