Have you been or seen this sort of issue before whilst doing your PhD?; the authors of a paper were in a situation such as:
(1)the arrangement of the authors cannot be agreed, so there were conflicts going on.
(2)the first author should be X, but Y got it; again conflicts arised.
(3)X didn't get authorship but did most of the work; same as above.
(4)anything you've seen or experience.
How was it solved and how would you handle it if you were in the situation?
To be honest, the replies made me really sad :' (
A few of my papers have been accepted but I can't go due to limited funding :' ( My supervisor said he has the grant ,but suddenly after a few weeks or months after the paper(s) was accepted, he said that the grant can't be used for the conferences or the place is just too far away (i.e. too expensive).
In my view, he should have told me earlier if his grant can't afford paying for the conferences since I've sent the paper to him months in advance...
I wanted to borrow money from some of my friends but I'm terrified of getting into debt and not being able to pay them.
I understand what you all are saying about networking and all (and that was the plan actually; to send the paper so that I can get more ideas) but due to my circumstances, I couldn't present the paper :' (
lol. that's s good one meaningoflife, and that's actually a good idea! I've completely forgotten the "how to present or "sell" yourself for job appointments! ah... living in the academic bubble.
thank you wowzer. yes, looking back, I did have some working experience; I did some system development (research level)and am still a research assistant. I think that wouldn't leave any gap in the CV.
I was wondering, if something were to happen along the way, what kind of skills (out of the PhD) do I have in order to get a normal job other than research skills : /
I've read a lot of things about the PhD journey and I would rather get ready for the worst.
I've been out from my own industrial sector for 2 years now (IT) and have no idea if any employees would be interested with me : /
I'm asking this in a general sense; does it look bad for the supervisor if the PG student, especially the PhD student drops out from the programme?
Dropping out reasons I can think of at the moment are:
2)Poor supervision/No direction
You can add in any reason if you like.
I think it's a good idea to have an informal inquiry with a potential project/supervisor; at least you can see whether you like the supervisor in person!
In my opinion, you can ask them anything you believe is best for you (I would). Come with a mind setting where you want something that's best for you, not for them.
I don't think you have to worry about being artificial; it's after all "informal".
