An overview is given on the influence of the publication profile on the citations per paper (CPP). For this purpose, an example is presented where the CPP and CPP/WAF yield results that are contradictory to the results of other measures of research impact and productivity. A simulation study of the influence of the publication profile on the CPP is presented and the weakness of the CPP is demonstrated. Further, a new 'weighted CPP,' which is invariant of the publication profile, is introduced.
