Academics do many things. We teach, research, run departments, engage in public debate, and train young researchers. The outputs of some of these activities are routinely measured and thus play an important role in rewards and promotion. The standard and mostly widely followed measures involve publication outputs (see Hudson 2013 and Conley et al. 2011). Other activities are rarely assessed and thus left to the intrinsic motivation of the academic. Research supervision is one.
