the filler icon

I have major major problems finishing my  post  so I give you another filler.

Of the 14623 ISI publications which came from the Philippines to date, who wrote the most?

Again as a reminder, please read the note below this post.*  This is just quantity.  I really can’t comment about the quality.

This is the second of the Filler series.   I google-stalked the top 15 to find their affiliations. Some authors may come from outside the country but they have Philippine-based co-authors so I also write the affiliation of the co-authors.  Some names are very familiar.   Here goes.

* Because I’ve been lazy and will likely to be lazy in the future,  please welcome my Filler series. This series is intended as a break from reading and writing science, and to deal with numbers (or indicators, whatever that means) in general.  I say numbers since most,  if not all of my Fillers,  will be graphs of general interest to the Philippine science community but whose importance is relative.  Relative because they are nice to look at,  some can conclude somethings about them but are probably worthless to a scientist – no new knowledge will be gained by reading this. Unless of course you want to waste your time on a debate about the state of Philippine science and not do science at all.
