I have now written about 250 entries in this blog. Some have been very well-received and appreciated and others have been successful only in my own mind. However, it is universally accepted that only if you publish in a “high-impact” journal you are doing any worthwhile reasearch. Well, I am not sure I agree with that in all cases but I am happy to have two articles in a 2017 special issue of the Journal of Cultural Heritage. Despite this I have no immediate plans to quit making guitars and go back to the university.
