I submitted an article around 11 months ago to a SCI journal and another article around 5 months ago in another SCI journal. The second article cited the first article which was under review for 6 months at the time of submission of second article. Recently, we got acceptance letter for 2nd article while 1st article is still under review.
What action should we take? remove the citation in 2nd article and cite the 2nd article in 1st article or we stay with the current situation. but what if our 1st article got rejection?

Assume that I am an computer science undergraduate, and I am interested in how studying distractions influence exam scores in the long run, i.e. do you gain a tolerance by studying with distractions eventually?

If I had done significant investigation in this area and found that there were no previous research on such a matter, is it possible for me to get this project started, although I have no experience in the related field (in this particular example, cognitive sciences)?

If so, how?

I have a B.E Civil Engineering and M.tech Environmental Engineering degree from India. Also I have 2 years of teaching experience in an Engineering college in India. Currently I am residing in US. Is it possible for me to get a teaching job in community colleges? How should I prepare myself to get a teaching job here?

To clarify: I have an H4 visa.

Equation : -0.87 sin (4x) – 0.56 log (4x) + 1.32 ln (5x)
Range of x : 8<= x <18
Step of x : 0.100

  1. Generate value of f(x)?
  2. Convert to rad?
  3. Perform magnitude scaling on f(x) such that the scaling ranges a and b are given by user, where π‘Ž<𝑏 and π‘Ž>0. The scaled output π‘“π‘ π‘π‘Žπ‘™π‘’π‘‘ can be found from: π‘“π‘ π‘π‘Žπ‘™π‘’π‘‘=[(bβˆ’a)(𝑓(π‘₯)βˆ’min(𝑓(π‘₯)))]/[max(𝑓(π‘₯))βˆ’min⁑(𝑓(π‘₯))+π‘Ž]
  4. Find standard deviation of π‘“π‘ π‘π‘Žπ‘™π‘’π‘‘ for 5 evenly divided quantiles of π‘“π‘ π‘π‘Žπ‘™π‘’π‘‘ and find the frequency of occurrence within each quantile.
  5. Find variances of π‘“π‘ π‘π‘Žπ‘™π‘’π‘‘ for 5 evenly divided quantiles of π‘“π‘ π‘π‘Žπ‘™π‘’π‘‘ and find the frequency of occurrence within each quantile.
  6. Remove values of π‘“π‘ π‘π‘Žπ‘™π‘’π‘‘ which is less than P, where P will be entered by user and π‘Žβ‰€π‘ƒβ‰€π‘. Then find the means of π‘“π‘ π‘π‘Žπ‘™π‘’π‘‘β‘for each 5 evenly divided quantiles of the new data

I am trying to assess how much public funding private universities in the United States receive.

I found a study that partially answers the question:

Taxpayer Subsidies for Most Colleges and Universities Average Between $8,000 to More than $100,000 for Each Bachelor’s Degree, New Study Finds
(published in 2011):

Washington, D.C. – Taxpayer subsidies that cover the operating costs
of most colleges and universities ranges from around $8,000 to more
than $100,000 for each bachelor’s degree awarded, with most public
institutions averaging more than $60,000 per degree, according to an
analysis by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) and Nexus
Research and Policy Center (Nexus).

Among elite private universities, like Harvard and Yale, the average
taxpayer subsidy is $13,000 per student per year
, while the annual
subsidy at the most selective public universities, like the University
of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and the University of California, Los
Angeles is more than $23,000 per student annually.

The financial figures reflect the amount of money colleges and
universities receive in direct government support and tax breaks. They
do not include loans and grants provided by state and federal
governments to help students meet tuition costs.

However, this leaves out how much public funding go into loans and grants provided by state and federal governments to help students meet tuition costs in the United States.

I got interested in that question reading U.S. to Forgive at Least $108 Billion in Student Debt in Coming Years (published on November 30, 2016).

I’m a PhD Student and I want to be invited by a university for a research collaboration. So, I have to get an invitation letter so my country can give me a scholarship and I can go to that university so they can help me with my research. It’s like an internship.

Can anyone tell me how to write an email and what should I put in it to make it professional?

I’ve been reading conflicting advice on SE about the placement of an illustration (figure, table, algorithm). My questions are thus (refer to Section 3.3.1 in the attached figure):

  1. I understand that, ideally, an illustration should always be placed inside the section where it is first referenced. Should an illustration always be placed in a section after it is referenced? Could it be placed in the same section before it is referenced?
  2. Can an illustration be the last entity in a section (as shown in Section 3.3.1)? Or does there need to be text after it, such as a short line on what is to be discussed in the next section?

Thanks!
