BU Today graced us this morning with a funny cover story, proclaiming that “BU’s Research Paper Productivity Gets High Marks”, adding that “University in fifth place in national cost per paper analysis”.
The bottom line is that the Cost/Paper at BU is $50K vs $72K nationally. BU is a bargain when it comes to paper-per-dollar 🙂 The silly season must be upon us!
A colleague here at BU suggested that all we have to do to get better papers-per-dollar is to submit to the “World Multiconference on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics” 🙂 What a joke — and a waste of tax-payer money to fund studies like this… And, shame on BU Today for marching in that parade!
Our request for raises is making its way to central administration 🙂
