PhD, Performance Measures, Professors

Links to three interesting articles. Let's go in the reverse order.

Teacher, researcher, professor: Just how different are these roles? (pdf; very interesting perspective)

Measuring research performance (a quirky take on how 'they' measure your worth as an academic)

Notes on the Ph.D. degree (a little too CS-centric).

Thanks to Vishnu for the first, and to Subrahmanya for the last two.

    yes indeed, the pdf one on who a professor is, is good. makes me more demanding from me, before i choose to 'earn' the title in enough years...

    A short note. Perhaps of some interest in this context.
