Thank you Natassia, everything got sorted with the article and it has now been submitted. Finally!
Hi Batfink! I'm glad to hear your presentation went well and that you have a job interview. They're not giving you much time to prepare, are they? I hope you get it :)
I'm back working on my revisions now. I was working on my methodology chapter before so will get back to it. It's been so long I can't even remember what I'm up to. I'll have a quick look at what's been done, what's missing and will probably make a plan of action, something that I haven't done yet and really need to for this chapter.
Have a productive day everyone!
I'm submitting a revised article and I need some advice. They're asking for a cover letter and I just don't know what to put on it. I'd already written a document that was to serve as a cover letter and describe the revisions made but the system won't allow me to upload that document twice. What can I write on this cover letter?
By the way, I'm actually submitting this now so any ideas would be great.
Oh, Button, what's wrong with your dog? What dog do you have? I hope you manage to get all of your goals done despite the interruptions! Saying that, all work and no fun isn't good for us;-)
I'm awaiting for feedback on the journal article today but have to run some errands as well (post office, local library and Tesco) so I might just do these now whilst I'm awaiting. Everything going according to plan, I should be able to go back to my methodology chapter in the afternoon.
Have a productive day everyone!
Labpixie and Benyaya - please don't let the lack of diversity on your daily tasks stop you from posting. I think we all know that the phd is a loooong process and some things take longer than others plus we can get stuck with things that can take ages to resolve ;)
Emmaki - get well soon! I hope you get it all sorted soon enough!
I've literally just finished my journal article. Not great but at least it's done. I'm off to have a shower and then read my book before going to bed. Good night all!
Button, like Linda says, we all procrastinate at some point. Don't be too harsh on yourself. We all work differently and it sounds like, even with your procrastination, you manage pretty well or you wouldn't have been able to hand a draft of your thesis in already.
I'm glad you're feeling better Linda. Well done on your productive day.
My day hasn't been too bad. I just need to finish the discussion/conclusion. I'm struggling a bit as I'm not too sure about some of the revisions required. But after a couple of hours thinking/planning I think I've got it. I'll just write and email them. They know my situation and I'm unwilling to push myself to do too much at this stage.
Thanks Linda! How are you feeling anyway? Better, I hope?
I'm starting earlier than usual today as I need to finish all the revisions by the end of the day so hopefully I'll have the energy to do it all. Fingers crossed.
Goals for the day:
1) Finish amending intro
2) Amend discussion/conclusion
I also need to make proof read the remainder of the journal article but as this is a much easier task, I'll do it whenever motivation levels are starting to drop.
Have a good day everyone!
Welcome to the thread Gary_Scientist.
Thank you, Linda. Feedback wasn't awful but I need to change a couple of major bits in the intro and discussion and very little time eek
Button, I'm so impressed with you doing the Xmas shopping already! I'm not even thinking about it yet.
My one goal for today is to amend the intro. But before I do that, I need to work out what's happening with my laptop as it's playing up a bit!
