This question already has an answer here:

I am writing a research paper where references have to be addressed by author name and the year of his/her publication. I.e (Hamidi 2016).

The article that I am planning to include is in German language, so what is the best way to cite this article in my manuscript?

Long story short, I was sick for most of my undergraduate career and because of this had to withdraw twice. The grades I had at my university were very bad.

I’m finally at a point where my health is becoming stable, but I’m now faced with the repercussions of not having any relevant experience or the grades to help me gain experience, like research positions.

I’m really interested in psychological research, but I’m not sure how to convince professors to give me a chance. I thought about returning to university and focusing on getting good grades to show for. Can I take up my own small, personal research projects to also show for? I don’t know what I’d do yet but it’s worth a shot.

I am a postdoc applying for a research-level tenure-track assistant-professor position in 1st-world English-speaking or German-speaking countries. The area is Computer Science. The Web is full of recommendations on how to write an good job application of this type. Now, I’m spending about a week on a single application. I have my templates, which I adapt to the institution in question, but the adaptation process and the submission process takes really long, since the processes of the institutions differ. It ranges from different web sites for submission and ends with different names of documents (e.g., Reseach Plan vs. Reseach Statement vs. Research Objectives, …) and their lengths. You know how bad it can get, even if the types of all institutions are the same (e.g., CS departments at R1 universities). I’m not the strongest person in my subfield, so, I have to apply a lot (200+ applications) and widely to get a chance of, say, 50%. Therefore, I’d like to reduce the time from 1 week to, say, 1 hour.

  • What strategy could you propose to reduce the time while maintaining the quality?

  • If you have gone through this process already, what was your personal way of reducing the application effort?

Partial answers specifying, e.g., the time you take for different stages of the process, are also accepted:

  • adapting the cover letter,
  • adapting the CV,
  • adapting the teaching statement,
  • adapting the research statement,
  • adapting the publication list,
  • filling the forms on the Web page of the prospective employer,
  • getting informed about the prospective employer,
  • asking questions via e-mail or phone and receiving answers regarding the advertised position,
  • requesting reference letters,

I have been tasked with extract Text out of PDF made out of images, that is, it is not possible to copy past or in general gather all of the text.

There are several tools that do this, and I am in the process of testing some of them. I’ve been told by the previous person in charge that they were using Tesseract, and reading documentation about it, I thought, ok this is a really complex matter, there has to be studies about this issue.

So I am reading stuff like Comparison of Text Extraction Techniques- A

In which I can see someone has done proper research on what works in which cases.

Now to my question. How do I go from this to, ok, I would like to test this out. Are this tests and performance ever released in program form? Is it something possible to track, which technique is a program using, to see if it’s the one that has been theoretically defined to my particular case?

Because I understand that it is not always going to be possible to do so, but I find 0 implementations, and I have to wonder, what good is it to develop this techniques and studies, if no one else can use them?

Is there other way to go arround this? Because I obviously do not have years of experience nor I am writing a paper/thesis on this issue, so even if I were to start from scratch, I doubt I’d get to, say, 98% accuracy, as stated in some cases. I need the best tool possible, and I am being told that there are, indeed, people that were able to do this.

So is it possible for me, at least in some cases, to recreate what they have done? And if so, how do I find it?

I withdrew from my graduate studies due to academic bullying from a professor I would continually have throughout the rest of my graduate studies. I was given F’s and C’s in classes taught by that professor and they were deliberate no matter how precise my answers were. I took it to the Dean but he her friend and I showed him the assignments and tests and he refused to “go on a witch hunt” as he would say. Therefore I decided to leave before my gpa dropped drastically and get kicked out for academic deficiency. There were also blatant attacks and passive agressiveness during the lectures and conversations I had with the professor. I did the right thing it was obvious there was foul play. What I wanted to know is if I have a chance at being accepted by another graduate program? I can get letters from other professors from my department as I always scored A’s in every other class not taught by this tyrant professor.

I am a senior math student at a top 20 program in the U.S (UIUC). I will be applying for the Fall 2018 semester. As the title stated, my overall GPA is about 3.3, and my math GPA is about 3.9 (Mostly A and A+ in all of my math courses). I have taken roughly 50 credit hours of mathematics beyond Calculus, including 3 graduate level courses (with other Ph.Ds at my university) in Topology, Commutative Algebra, and Modern Algebraic Geometry (Scheme theory; Covered Chapter 2 in Hartshorne’s), some research and reading courses in Homological Algebra. I will be taking the GRE subject test this October. I am a little worried about my overall GPA. I am worried if my overall 3.3 GPA might hurt my chance of admission to some decent programs? I am not looking to apply for any top 10 schools. Thanks

I am currently in Year 12 (13 in September) and took a combination of AS and A2-Levels in Mathematics this May/June. I just got my results back, and even though I am personally satisfied with them, they are not outstanding.

Now, I have always been good at mathematics (I have always been considered the go-to person for help by classmates, and have been praised a lot by teachers), but have always struggled with standardised tests like A-Levels and SATs, as they focus on very specific types of questions (sometimes they just change the variables) and expect a candidate to be able to rush through them.

Whilst I don’t mind doing badly in standardised tests (I always get 100% in the same tests when allowed to take more time, so I clearly do understand the material), I will probably not be offered an interview by a good university unless I manage to get 95%+ in most of my exams.

I intend on resitting most of my exams this year, but the results are likely to be the same unless I can change something.

Hence my question: how can I do better at timed tests like A-Levels given that the material is not the problem?

I am currently in the process of waiting for PhD verdict. I have submitted the thesis last 2 weeks for examination and I am thinking while waiting for PhD verdict, I want to write a review paper on my subject. The reason is because I have ran out results from my PhD study for publication and I reckon why not try on reviewing the subject I am studying. My area of research is biological science. My question is whether it is possible to write a review to journal without being invited to do so.
