10K Milestone!

I checked Google Scholar today, (August 20, 2019) and it reports that Star and Griesemer (1989) — the boundary objects paper — has 10,077 citations! Crossref counts 3,742 and Web of Science counts 3,562 (according to the Sage Journals web page on our article). Sage reports 4,277 downloads since December 2016.


I’m pleased to report that I became a Distinguished Professor at UC Davis on July 1, 2019! I won’t be resting on laurels, though, since I don’t have any laurels, though I do think I have some bay leaf in a jar on the kitchen counter somewhere …

I thank the community for supporting my promotion and hope to get some work done as a Distinguished Professor before I become an Extinguished Professor.
