Spain Is My New Favorite Country

I know my sidebar says that this is where I talk about this non-research related, but I couldn’t help  but share today’s “research revelation”:  I’m now a cited author!

Yup!  Today I got an email alert that someone in SPAIN actually read my paper (published a year ago) and decided that it was SO GOOD that they would CITE IT in their OWN paper!  Yahoo!

So I know this probably happens to other researchers all the time, but this was my first cite (apart from the time I cited myself.  but that doesn’t count!)

Actually, the post-doc in our lab told me that over 90% of papers never get cited (by anyone other than the authors).  Pretty cool!

So today I’ll celebrate that someone in Spain thinks my work is not completely useless :)
