Boosting Your Early Scientific Impact Metrics

Building your academic profile as soon as possible is crucial for those pursuing an academic career. Because there are substantial benefits to joining the party early. I liken this to the concept of compound interest. When you publish something, it will eventually be cited by someone else (and also by yourself). The higher this metric goes up, the more likely it will be published or cited by someone else. Basically, the longer you wait, the longer a paper is out there, the higher the likelihood that it will get cited. That's the simple math behind it.
