How to know you’re ready to submitPosted: March 21, 2014
As we all know, expectations and assessment are field-dependent. How do you know when to pull the publication trigger? A handy guide.
Cognitive Neuroscience: a voxel has p super-duper approaching 0.05
Systems Neuroscience: literally anything in a mouse’s brain correlates with literally anything the mouse is doing
Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience: antibody works
Developmental Biology: in situ has stripe-y pattern
Systems Biology: instead of making 100 careful, well-controlled measurements, you have made 10,000 really shitty measurements. But you’re happy to share them.
Connectomics: You will never publish. Maybe now you regret not just calling it neuroanatomy?
Computational Biology: You just finished a 37 hour, Red Bull-fuelled coding binge. It does the same thing as an ImageJ plugin, except it’s your code.
Neuroethology: you’ve been been painstakingly collecting behavioral and physiological data in the field and the lab for 10 years or more.
Yeast Genetics: It’s Tuesday.
