In my field, research output is measured by publications in journals. But not all publications are equal.
I remember hearing in graduate school: 'It's OK to publish one paper there--that's not too bad. But don't publish two. The second subtracts from your vita, not adds to it.'
Is that really true? Is a publication in a some outlets worse than shelving the paper? (I have had my fair share.) I used to think worse. But now, getting the paper into print is a win. And all publications take lots of work--as long as the publication is refereed, the referee is going to want some revision. Never minor, either.
