Sure, but it's because of the narrow-minded market-oriented view of
'impact' which our funding councils have, that our discipline and
universities in general have turned into such dire spaces to work in...
It's a very tricky subject how one can resist this tendency, and early
career scholars volunteering their work into vanity publishers as Lambert
are not in the best position to do that.
But that said, especially senior/tenured scholars should really think of
how much they try to fit these impact criteria, and reinforce them in
recruitment processes, and that is a very serious conversation we need to
have across the discipline.
