The number of publications listed in dblp for an author is no indication for the quality or importance of her or his work.
Some scientists with a relatively small publication count have an enormous impact on their field. A good example is E. F. Codd, who invented the relational data model.
- Within the field of computer science, different sub-disciplines do exhibit a very different publication behavior. So keep in mind that a simple publication count is no universal measure.
Very prolific authors may have a poor publication count in dblp because their main work is outside of the scope of dblp. Paul Erdös probably has published more papers than any other person, but his focus was not computer science.
- When counting publications, dblp does not distinguish between different types of publications. That is, monographs, journal articles, preprints, workshop papers, editorials, or even the few web pages we list are all counted as "one record".
- Despite our efforts, dblp is far from being "complete". Also, the coverage of the different sub-fields of computer science in dblp is still quite inhomogeneous, as has been pointed out by a recent study.
Or, to use more elaborate words:
"Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted."
— famous saying, probably not by Albert Einstein
Nevertheless, you can find our list of the most prolific dblp authors here.
