+|  Conference  | A gathering of scientists for the purpose of presenting their own work to each other.  |
+|  Workshop    | Conferences often have workshops on selected topics. These draw crowds from 8-40 people, depending on the size of the conference. Typically papers submitted to workshops are published in the conference proceedings.  |
+|  Conference Proceedings   | A publication of all the work presented at the conference, in the form of scientific papers.  |
+|  Journal     | A professional outlet/publication for scientific work.   |
+|  Technical report   | Anything can be published a technical report. Tech reports published by university departments are typically not peer-reviewed.  |
+|  Measuring scientific prestige  | Scientists compete. They compete for **prestige**, as measured by: \\ 1. Number of publications. \\ 2. Number of publications they are listed as first author on. \\ 3. Number of publications per year. \\ 4. Number of quotations by others to their work. \\ 5. Quality of publications that papers get published in.  |
+|  Prestige of scientific outlets  | From low to high: \\ * Tech report \\ * Workshop paper \\ * Conference paper \\ * Book authored \\ * Journal paper  |

|  Language quality      | Nothing is as annoying as a good paper that falls flat on bad use of English (which, let's face it, is the language of science, at least until China overpowers us with Mandarin). Be brutal! Do not be nice to badly written papers. NB: There is always room for improvement in this regard.   |  |  Language quality      | Nothing is as annoying as a good paper that falls flat on bad use of English (which, let's face it, is the language of science, at least until China overpowers us with Mandarin).
