I know what he means, but … the flip side of this is that academic publishing is so slow that many of my 2012 publications will in fact appear in 2013. I could sit on my butt and do nothing for the next 364 days and I’d still have a nicely productive year, on paper. And in a pleasant bit of time averaging, some of these already finished projects might not even show up until 2014!
