Last update: Aug 17, 2020

2020 is my 10th year of publishing in academia. So, I decided to have a self-evaluation on my publication records to understand what do I need to change.

  • Worked on 38 journal papers in total, and 32 of them (84.2%) have been published (gave up on 6 of them).

  • 78% of the published papers have been (or will be soon) indexed in Scopus, while the remaining 22% have not.

  • Been the first author in 18 published papers (56% of the publications).

  • Been the corresponding author in 15 published papers (46.8% of the publications).

  • Published in 18 different journals.

  • The highest number of papers published in a journal is 7 (Energy, Elsevier), while the second-highest is 3 (Ocean Engineering, Elsevier)​.

  • The number of submission attempts is 80, including: 45 times of rejection, 32 times of acceptance and 3 times of withdrawal.

  • 40% of the submissions have been successful, while 56% of them have been rejected. This is what we usually do not share. We just share the tip of the iceberg!
