Actually, I already did ask the supervisor regarding the conference a long time ago; they never replied to my queries regarding the matter. .
I usually ask people around in the department of course; but I would also ask somewhere else just to get an expended view. So the "effort" is really not the issue; it's just that I'm not getting the answer I'm seeking.
There's nothing wrong with retracting a paper from a conferences (as long as you haven't registered it i.e. payed the fees); you only to need to inform the chair in order to do so.
I posted the post to ask whether or not I should retract and send somewhere else, and see if someone else has the experienced doing it.
A paper of mine was accepted to a low-tier conference recently, and not indexed by sources such as IEEE, Scopus, etc. I submitted the paper because I wasn't really confident with the paper; but now I am, and I believe that the paper may benefit from conferences that are indexed by good sources such as IEEE, Scopus, ISI, etc
Should I withdraw the paper and send it to somewhere else?
Any advice is welcome!.
I've heard a lot about supervisors dominating their PhD students, to the point of making the candidates quit their PhDs or bullying them to the point of making them feel really demotivated.
Assuming that the PhD candidate paid the tuition fees in full, as well as other expenses, wouldn't the student now be the leader/boss or simply the customer (considering they are actually paying the supervisor's salary) and the supervisor is just merely giving a service based on their advises and other obligated tasks?
The supervisor now has no whatsoever right to "order" them around isn't it?
Ok, I wrote this paper by myself, 100%, for a few months and it has now finished. I included my supervisor's name since he did give some input on the matter, such as arrangement of abstract and the sort. I also included him because he's the "supervisor".
But a few days ago, he asked me to put in this other author's name that didn't do anything for the paper. The only thing he did was to secure the funding for the paper. Since that is his job anyway, I think his name should be on the acknowledgement, not as an author; am I right?
I'm slightly confused with this decision to put him as an "author". Why? He didn't do anything...
I wanted to ask the supervisor, but I think I'd ask your opinions first regarding the matter. Should I even ask him?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks for the replies.
In your own opinion, what does a bad paper mean?
If you want to get published, then heed this advice:
Cite your friends at least once and your enemies twice,
Cite the editor three times, yourself at least four,
And write in a style that's intended to bore.
If you want to get published, here's what you must do
Above all: don't come up with anything new. J.E.C.
Why do you think this advice is good?
(1)Is it possible to get published in a peer-reviewed place even when the result(s) of the experiment is wrong?
e.g. the peer reviewer somehow missed the erroneous result(s).
(2)Is there actually a "bad" published paper? I've heard a lot of of these "there are so many rubbish published papers", but I don't know what it actually means.
Title says it all; ergh : /
Maybe "hate" is a bit strong, but it annoys me really when the places where I submit my papers keep on extending their deadlines and notification of acceptance. It makes me anxious! : (
Is there a way not to so feel anxious? How do you handle the wait and the extended deadlines?
Try to get a life/hobby? lol I do have one : p But you know, after the "life" or hobby, I still somehow think about it *'.'*
