We surveyed 323 readers to find out how many peer-reviewed research papers they have published in the past year, and in their careers. Readers published a median of 2.1 papers in the past 12 months, and in a median career length of 12.5 years, they published 27.0 papers.

We surveyed 323 readers to find out how many peer-reviewed research papers they have published in the past year, and in their careers. Readers published a median of 2.1 papers in the past 12 months, and in a median career length of 12.5 years, they published 27.0 papers. That's an average of 2.2 papers per year throughout their research careers. Not surprisingly, a moderate linear correlation (r2=0.49) exists between career length and number of papers published. More than 10% of our readers have published 100 or more papers in their careers, and nearly 75% published at least once in the past 12 months.
