comment Getting a scientific article published with no qualifications to any scientific journal?
Great answer, although I wish to highlight that plenty of people publish as undergraduates, with only 4 years or so of directed effort in general. EDIT: Although, I suppose if you want to publish INDEPENDENTLY, most people would indeed need 10 or so years of training to do so well.

comment Is it common to claim co-authorship by helping writing a paper without doing any research
There is a difference between "providing valuable feedback" and re-writing large portions of a paper. The former certainly belongs in the acknowledgements section, but the later might be different and might be what the asker is referring to.

comment In teaching, what are the advantages of using slides over doing board work?
This answer is about how profs who use boards are better than those who use slides, not about the inherent value of either methods. I've seen plenty of bad profs use either, and good ones too.

comment How do I convert my PhD dissertation so that it can be published as a book?
These questions are very important and I suggest they be considered. In my field, a book published by a shady publisher would only make you look worse as an academic.

comment How do I convert my PhD dissertation so that it can be published as a book?
Pay-to-publish is a terrible thing (unless of course its simply a publication fee in a respected journal), and comparing VDM to this only makes VDM look even worse....

comment Hourly rates for industry consulting?
130-300 an hour is what I would expect. Its hard to base it off a % of salary since being a professor has several other benefits and people don't do it just for the money, while consulting is often just for the money. As a graduate student my salary at times was 30k a year but I was charging 120$ an hour for consulting.

comment Reusing material from thesis proposal in final thesis
If anything, I would think that parts of the proposal should be included in a final document. 50% of my dissertation was copy pasted from my proposal.

comment When can a person be called a PhD ABD?
I also wish to mention that in certain places and in certain disciplines using the term ABD is strictly prohibited. For example, a psychologist in many places would get in serious trouble for referring to themselves as a psychologist, Ph.D. ABD, even if being a registered psychologist (with an MA, for example).

comment Is there a web service that receives a reference and returns the impact factor?
Papers do not have impact factors. Do you mean for a journal?

comment How to obtain number of publications by year on a given subject?
Google has the overwhelming majority of "articles" published in peer-reviewed journals, so I would not argue that it is missing much, unless you are interested in conference abstracts and such.

comment Why there are two different results?
I should perhaps mention that the title is literally a duplication of stats.stackexchange.com/questions/33888/…

comment When is it appropriate to add references to own papers on Wikipedia?
I think this is a ridiculous recommendation. What if you want to help write the article on a new species of bird and one of your papers is the only one describing its wingspan? If would be ludicrous not to cite your paper.

comment How include contributions to a manuscript of a paper in CV
Yes this is true, but I would not put that it is the "intended journal of publication" as written in your answer.

comment How include contributions to a manuscript of a paper in CV
I would write with (in preparation) instead of where the year would go. I would not put intended journal of publication, that is a bit presumptuous to me.

comment Why don't all disciplines follow a double-blind review system?
Are more than 50% of manuscripts really published before formal peer-review? That is interesting indeed. But still, I see this only applying to some disciplines.
