Analysis of Publication History
My publication and citation record demonstrates research productivity that is comparable with tenured scholars in my field, based on my Google Scholar Profile & Citations site (which does not report at least three known new citations from 2014). The H-index and i10-index metrics have been developed to assess a scholar’s research productivity in terms of the relevance of his or her research to others within related fields. The H-index reflects that n of your publications have received at least n citations each. The i10-index indicates how many of your publications have received at least 10 citations. For my peer-reviewed published research, my H-index is 5, and my i10-index is 3. This H-index compares favorably for productive researchers in management (4.17) and social sciences (3.46) as per Iglesias and Pecharroman (1997) as referenced at http://sci2s.ugr.es/hindex/. The i10-index is not yet baselined across different fields.
The lists below provide a selection of my peer-reviewed publications, conference presentations, invited talks, edited proceedings, and book chapters published between 1998 and June 2014. The full list of 93 publications and proceedings, 27 book reviews, and 8 internal memos is contained in my CV. A list of the Honors Theses and Masters Theses I have advised is also available here.
