How much evidence is enough
Hello GCforPhd Team,
I am a postdoc in experimental solid state physics with 9 publications and ~ 45 citations. I am planning to start the self petition through the NIW category. I believe I have a medium strength case as I don’t have many and also highly cited publications and the new publications won’t get much citations in the next 3-6 month (I am planning to publish 2-3 articles soon). To gauge the strength of my case I was reading the denials of administrative decisions of the USCIS appeals office and a recurring theme was that the petitioner did not provide a sufficient number of explicit examples of others in the field using the results of the petitioner’s research. I understand that this is always relative, but do you have en expectations how much of such examples is enough?
My naive expectations is that if the usual number of “required” references is 6, then all of those should contain such examples. If the references for some reasons are not containing such examples, then I still need roughly six examples from independent sources that my work is used by other peers. Are my expectations correct?
