my life's worth in numbers

So, the university is now setting up a new way of quantifying one's output research wise. The formula is
weight of publication*length/number of authors

although it is not as simple.
anyhow so yours truly calculated my own number
and during the past 7 years or so of publications(from 2003-), my number is 7.4 ... so like 1 point per year. this number has no relevance until you compare it to what the university is expecting their researchers to produce per year == 12 points.

which means... I have to do 12 times better than what I've done before...

shijsh! - as my Croatian friend would say
