A short guide to design your own strategy and survive bibliometrics, conferences, and unreal expectations in academia.

Academics need to publish, peer review, look for funding, attend conferences, do networking, set up consortia, engage in public dissemination activities, ... So how much is too much in the end? In this seminar, Abel Polèse, the author of ‘The Scopus Diaries’ (https://cup.columbia.edu/book/the-scopus-diaries-and-the-illogics-of-academic-survival/9783838211992 ), will provide a cost-benefit analysis of some of the available choices and ways to carry out the tasks that actual and future researchers are supposed to engage in, and most of the things everyone is supposed to do to enhance and survive one's academic career.

Abel Polèse is a scholar, writer, photographer and development worker. He works at Dublin City University and at the Tallinn University of Technology (TTÜ). To date, he has published 17 books and over 100 peer-reviewed chapters and articles.
