] "Richard G. Dudley" <[log in to unmask]>:

Well, I am not so sure employers would just look at the number of
publications rather than the quality  of  the material.  I may be
wrong but I, as a junior scientist, wouldn't just split  a  paper
into  several  pieces just for the sake of engrosing the numbers:
To come up with  something  new  is  a  process and it requires a
certain volume of pages and if I split up the  job  into  several
pieces  I'd  feel I was cheating.  Or are we up to go for the 'To
be continued' as I, once, read  in  a symposium paper :-) ?.



] Why is this? Just look back at the fish ecology archives!  A few weeks
] back we were discussing how to fatten up your resume so that you had
] more publications to impress potential employers.
] Don't write one comprehensive paper say the experts.... fatten your
] resume by making it into two, four or eight!
] The purpose of these publications is no longer the lofty goal of
] "communication of scientific information to colleagues", but rather
] (necessary) self promotion.
