I like to keep people up to date with my latest citation counts. I’ve just seen my h-index rise to 14 which pleases me greatly. In essence this is an empty statistic which I check obsessively and derive some self-worth from.
The new paper that has made it into the charmed circle is Evaluating the impact of career management skills module and internship programme within a university business school in which we evaluated a HE career management skills programme and internship and found that it made a difference to students employability.
In order to get my H-index up again people will have to cite that paper again as well as starting to cite one of the following more often.
- Teachers and careers
- A career postcode lottery? Local authority provision of youth and career support following the 2011 Education Act
- Understanding how people choose to pursue taught postgraduate study
- Tackling unemployment, supporting business and developing careers
- The economic benefits of career guidance
So you know what you have to do! Get citing!
