Or do high productive researchers mainly produce a sea of irrelevant papers—in other words do we find a diminishing marginal result from productivity? The answer on these questions is important, as it may help to answer the question of whether the increased com-petition and increased use of indicators for research evaluation and accountability focus has perverse effects or not. We use a Swedish author disambiguated dataset consisting of 48.000 researchers and their WoS-publications during the period of 2008–2011 with cita-tions until 2014 to investigate the relation between productivity and production of highly cited papers. As the analysis shows, quantity does make a difference.", "link"=>"http://www.mendeley.com/research/quantity-andor-quality-importance-publishing-papers", "reader_count"=>22, "reader_count_by_academic_status"=>{"Professor > Associate Professor"=>5, "Researcher"=>7, "Other"=>1, "Student > Master"=>3, "Librarian"=>2, "Lecturer > Senior Lecturer"=>1, "Professor"=>2, "Student > Postgraduate"=>1}, "reader_count_by_user_role"=>{"Professor > Associate Professor"=>5, "Researcher"=>7, "Other"=>1, "Student > Master"=>3, "Librarian"=>2, "Lecturer > Senior Lecturer"=>1, "Professor"=>2, "Student > Postgraduate"=>1}, "reader_count_by_subject_area"=>{"Environmental Science"=>1, "Agricultural and Biological Sciences"=>3, "Computer Science"=>6, "Social Sciences"=>5, "Engineering"=>2, "Medicine and Dentistry"=>1, "Arts and Humanities"=>1, "Psychology"=>2, "Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology"=>1}, "reader_count_by_subdiscipline"=>{"Engineering"=>{"Engineering"=>2}, "Medicine and Dentistry"=>{"Medicine and Dentistry"=>1}, "Social Sciences"=>{"Social Sciences"=>5}, "Psychology"=>{"Psychology"=>2}, "Agricultural and Biological Sciences"=>{"Agricultural and Biological Sciences"=>3}, "Computer Science"=>{"Computer Science"=>6}, "Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology"=>{"Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology"=>1}, "Environmental Science"=>{"Environmental Science"=>1}, "Arts and Humanities"=>{"Arts and Humanities"=>1}}, "reader_count_by_country"=>{"Netherlands"=>1, "Austria"=>1}, "group_count"=>1}
