2017 in numbers

As a follow-up to last year’s post, a quick personal note on my scholar profile. As of now, second week of January 2018, my publications reached 1001 citations according to Google scholar (vs. 700 at this time last year/ 500 two years ago). Google scholar currently lists 53 publications (vs. 43 last year, most peer-reviewed), and one US patent. Our first GPS paper currently has 203 cites. My h-index has increased to 15 (from 11), my i10-index is currently 18, from ~12 last year.

Semantic scholar stopped listing total citation numbers for profiles. I noted they revised/reduced my citation estimate for 2016 quite a bit, down to 111 (was >200 before). They still indicate how many papers were strongly influenced by my work (54), compared to 7 in previous year.

Scopus lists generally lower numbers (e.g. only 39 publications, ~450 citations), but they provide a number of co-authors: 66.

Other numbers for 2017: Github lists 450 commits to repositories (after 807 in 2016). I received 16,285 mails on my university account (after removal of spam). Per working day, that would make around 64 mails. I sent 4,733 mails (~19 per working day). Both numbers are quite close to my 2016/2015 statistics.
