Four pillars of scientific reputations

Posted by mbhatti73 on 23 Jul 2011 at 13:52 GMT

1. Published papers along with their impact factor and citations received.
2. Research grants received
3. Patents filed and commercialized
4. Excellent interpersonal skills/communications skills along with ability to travel widely.

As per my understanding, these above four points are pillars of scientific reputation.
