I'm planning to write (actually 30% completion) this particular paper where I would like to discuss a new idea I've invented. This idea will have some experiments conducted in future to show some of its behaviors.
But, would it be possible if I discuss the idea, my future plans for the experiments, some literature, future works on paper and then proceed to send it to a conference (proceeding) before doing the experiments?
I will write another paper for the experiments of course.
Ok, so I'm working with this other researcher on a paper where we agreed that the person will be the first author and I'll be the second.
In my view, a second author has a lesser contribution than the first author but I don't really mind since the paper itself is not within my field. Also, since I'm a secondary author, the paper doesn't have much value to me (professionally compared to a first authored paper).
However, this person seems to want me to do more work than them. I've done the draft of the paper, the setups for the experiments, extract information from other papers, editing and now I've to do some of the analysis, as well as some discussions so that I can pave the way for the person to do the work.
The person said they are busy with other works and they are married, and I'm single, implying that I've more time. The last part made me so annoyed. Come one... throw that in my face? So... I'm single I've to do more work and I wouldn't even be recognized as the main contributor?
Am I in the right to be annoyed here? : (
According to the conference:
"Guidelines for Research Papers – Papers should not exceed 5,000 words, approximately 8 pages in ACM conference format (available at the site), including figures and references."
Ok, so I have 8 pages (7.5 pages to be precise), but my word count is 7000+ : (
Would this be acceptable? : /
