| | Re: Ph.D Number of Published Papers
I've never asked how many publications one have to have in our country for PhD. My supervisor says 5-6 would be good as far as my PhD is concerned, not necessarily connected to my PhD work, since we do many additional research.
But looking at others works 3 good publications is usually enough. There are various situations at my University though - some people have 6, some 12 and some 3. Those with many publications not necessarily published them in good journals, so I guess a lot depends on your supervisor or yourself.
