The scientific publication system has questionable sides: The more articles a researcher can publish in renowned journals ant the more often an article published in a journal is now cited by colleagues, the more her or his reputation increases. These problems are well known. That is why, for example, there are the so-called Dora principles, which should be observed in university appointments: Priority should not be given to those who have published in famous publications such as Nature or Science, but to those who convince through content. This is a desirable ideal, but one from which practice sometimes seems far off.
