The emphasis is not also on ‘who reads’. Like with the DHET incentive that rewards quantity rather than significance, we write to be cited, not to be actually read. It’s like a student coming to class to sign the register, rather than to learn anything. The reader, the target or consumer of publication, simply does not exist.
