NSIDP students who graduated between 2005 and the end of 2014 published on average 3.7 papers (SD: 2.6, SEM: 0.2) with a median of 4 papers per student. 9 students did not publish a single paper and 3 students published 10 or more papers.

Below is a self-reported sampling of publications arising from work during graduate school, mostly by current students.
