When submitting a paper to a journal, you don't need to obtain permission to use a book/source reference for literally any single reference you make (like you would in an undergrad essay/assignment)? I accept it might sound a ludicrously simple question, but I am slightly confused as to what 'permissions' entail. My presumption was that you would write a paper, and use footnotes / references like you would any other piece of work (not that you would have to literally email every single author or publisher to say - hey can I use a line on page 23 of this particular book as a reference?)
Hi, I am brand new to this site. I initially registered as I am in the process of trying to formulate a PhD project and am struggling to get ideas off the ground. Reading some of your thoughts/concerns on here have assured me that I am not the only person who feels the weight of the world on his shoulders at times.
I wanted to ask a separate question concerning the paper peer review process (for those who have experience of this). I submitted a paper early June, and from reading around the politics of publishing, I believe the peer review can take many months. I guess my intention here, is to see if anyone else can confirm this, or even better, share your experience(s). I received an email notifying me that I would hear in due course. What's the shortest or longest period of time you have had to wait for initial feedback? I know it is context specific to the particular journal/publisher etc. I just wanted to get a vague general picture of particular cases. I would appreciate any thoughts/feedback
