I’m re-writing my PhD dissertation as a book manuscript. My dissertation includes in-text citations to back up what I’m saying in almost every sentence – (Doe, 2012). My brief review of academic books on my bookshelf seems to imply that books don’t do this.

  1. I know the audience and purpose of a book is different than a manuscript, but shouldn’t the level (and visibility) of academic rigor be maintained?

  2. In a book manuscript for a university press, how do you go about integrating these citations? Should they just be transferred to footnotes that include the full bibliographic reference? Do you maintain the in-text citation?

One of my papers have been accepted to a conference for presentation. But we figured that the quality of the conference was quite bad and we wanted to submit it to a good/okay conference in the coming days. But my Master’s application deadline is fast approaching and I need to submit my CV.

Moreover, another work of mine is currently at the final stage (draft has been made) for submission in a journal.

How do I meantion this in my CV? Or should I not mention at all? So far I only have one conference paper that I have presented and has been included in the proceedings. Thank you.

I have submitted a paper to Physical Review E some 15 months ago. The criticism of the two referees was deep and serious so they suggested a major revision. The editor agreed to publish the paper if I can correctly answer their questions and implement their suggestions. In order to do so, I had to perform calculations which turned out to be lengthy and elaborate, but I have finally finished them. Now I see that the status of the manuscript is ‘not under active consideration’. Any idea about the meaning of that? Does it mean that the paper is finally rejected or can it be ‘reactivated’ by the editor? In the case of the former, can I move the manuscript to another publisher without further communication with the APS?

I am currently a Japanese college student. I am going to do research in artificial intelligence from this April.
After completing the first year of research, I am planning to go to the United States for 1 year.

During the last 5-6 months of the plan, I would like to do undergraduate research at some university in the US.
I am not sure if it is possible for an international student to do undergraduate research as an irregular student.
Of course I am not seeking any units or degrees.

How does the system of irregular acceptation of universities work in the US?

Thank You for the answers!

what to do when I do not share the same opinion as my advisor in revising my paper after i send it to him for review. In case the advisor asked for major revisions that will change the idea of the paper than what i wanted to say. I mean the structure, the idea or how i wrote my paper, and the metrics i used in my simulations given that they are logic and already used to evaluate the performance of my proposed technique in my field. Every time, I spend more than 6 months between the first draft than the last one because of the advisor comments. What should I do.

Thank you.

As part of our USAF Academy innovations/entrepreneurship class, we’re conducting a business model feasibility survey. Our team would love your input if you have, at the minimum, a bachelor’s degree. There is the possibility to get paid for your proofreading if the business is feasible and we press forward with the launch. Please feel free to share with or tag anyone you think would be interested. The link to the anonymous survey is below, and it should take less than 5 minutes:
