I submitted my paper to conference proceedings and still waiting to get the feedback within 2 months. When I uploaded the paper they asked me to fill the name and email for each co-author in the paper. So I did as they ask and I noticed that they sent an email to all mentioned authors (including the office of my professor and his secretary) that the paper is received and still under review.

What I want to ask is If the paper rejected or sent back to major reviews will my professor get an email from them as I will get?

Have any studies been done (rigorously academic or otherwise) which compare the abilities of graduates from different UK universities?

The universities have differing reputations and there are many league tables, but they tend to concentrate on things like entry standards, research ability, student satisfaction etc.

I realise it is an open-ended question and the degrees differ in their focus and so there would have to be an objective measure of ability, so it is impossible to answer the question generally but only give specific answers.

Does a typical graduate from the most advanced 3 year mathematics degree know twice as much as the typical graduate from the least? What about in other subjects?

How do the success rates in the graduate diploma in law differ between graduates with 2:1 degrees from UK university?

Beside the determination of a property of newly prepared compounds, I aimed for a comparision with the value of the same property for already literature-known materials. During this meta-analysis I became aware of a program that may assist this process.

In a first attempt, the software performed better than I expected. It looked like the potential field of application was more general than the one initially described in an accompanying publication for this program. I contacted the developer to check if the results still were reasonable with this “version A” of the softwared. The developer was surprised the algorithm implemented performs so well even in cases initially not envisaged / estimated as “too difficult” back then the software was released initially, confirmed the results, provided hints “how to do even better” and improved the software further into “version A+”.

The question is in the context of writing up for a publication. The intended paper’s barycentre will not be the aforementioned meta-analysis with this software. Certainly the developer will appear in the literature references for the initial publication presenting the software. Where however discern between a special acknowledgement in the publication, on one hand, and co-authorship, on the other? As “version A” was performing well, offering already the insight sought-after, yet “version A+” does so even better?

So far, to express gratitude for the assistance provided by the developer in the section “acknowledgements” is the minimum to do.

For my R&D course project, I am writing a survey paper and I want it to be published in great journals, so I am a bit confused regarding how to write a very good survey paper because I have never wrote one in the past, so can anyone please tell me what are the steps which I need to follow to write a survey paper.

Also if one can give me name of some top journals who publishes in the field of neuroscience,brain-computer interface. It will be very helpful.

I asked many people online & offline about this but none of the answers actually helped me. So I thought I can get some help here.


I have a particularly unusual problem that puts me in a bind. I am a first year Masters student at my faculty, and recently my supervisor have pushed me to “update” her previous student’s unpublished paper (few years old, so need to find newer papers to cite inside and format it properly for submission), add my name onto it as coauthor and publish it to IET. I feel its unethical, although my supervisor have assured me permission will be obtained from the original author. Feeling uncomfortable with this practice, I delayed doing that paper.

What are the implications if I proceed with it? Would it pose any problems to me in the future? I’m inclined towards not doing it though, but I want to hear expert opinions on this kind of practice. Thanks

I applied to 4 US PhD programs and I’ve received 3 rejections and 1 waitlist.

I also applied for a scholarship for $25,000/year x4years and just found out that I got it.

I’m thinking that I should update the school I’m waitlisted at because the scholarship could probably help my chances of getting in. I have some questions I’m hoping I can receive some input on here:

  1. How should I go about updating the waitlist school about this scholarship? Should I do this in writing or by phone?

  2. Should I inform the schools that have already rejected me about the scholarship–is it possible they may change their decisions based on this new information? And if so, how should I approach telling them?

  3. The scholarship would require me to research a certain (widely researched) disease and maintain one of my MSc supervisors (at a different institution) as a co-supervisor during my PhD. Is it likely that the school(s) will mind this (especially the second part)?

Thanks in advance for any and all feedback!
