Question by CentralSet: How many publications should a graduate student (5 year program) shoot for in a neuroscience program?
One publication good? Or should I go for like 8?

That depends on many, many factors. In my PhD program (physics) students at top universities might have 10 by the time they graduate, while students from lower-ranked programs might have only 1 (I’m talking first-author publications). Students who joined collaborations will have many more co-authored publications than students who didn’t, but that doesn’t make their work any better. It’s not all about the number.
