Abstract

[Extract] It doesn't matter whether or not you think it's fair: if you're an academic, your publishing record will have a crucial impact on your career.

It can profoundly affect your prospects for employment, for winning research grants, for climbing the academic ladder, for having a teaching load that doesn't absorb all your time, for winning academic prizes and fellowships, and for gaining the respect of your peers.
