As of this moment, my blog is the top hit for Google searches using:
"how many papers needed for tenure"
"papers needed for tenure"
"papers for tenure"
and number two for:
"how many papers for tenure"
Not that I care that people find my blog that way (I get 4-5 hits a day from people using those searches - and might even get more now with this post). It's more concerning that there are that many people who think they can find the answer on the internet.
Oh, and for those who find this post using such a search, read this.
