One of my research colleagues has a BSc degree in Biology with a CGPA of 3.93 and has been involved in research for about 2 years after completing his BSc. Actually, he has been involved in research since he was in his 3rd year so that makes it more than 3 years of him being involved in research.
Currently, he has 25 Scopus indexed papers (15 research papers, the rest are review papers) and 14 PubMed indexed papers (10 research papers, the rest are review papers). He has worked in three specific sectors of biology with 5-6 different supervisors.
He has the first authorship in about 9 of his publications and the impact factor of the journals where his papers are published ranges from 0.7 to 5.2, with most of the papers in the 1.0 to 2.0 range. Most of his papers have about 5 to 7 co-authors.
He is so passionate about research and he likes to write review articles.
But he is currently worried whether too many publications will harm his chance of getting admitted into graduate programs.
So, I would appreciate any suggestions regarding this problem.
