Eep.

So....my very first peer-reviewed journal submission has been sent off. My former advisor's name is on it as a co-author - which, since he's quite well-known, will either inspire easy acceptance or harsh criticism and hatred. I'm actually betting on the harsh criticism and hatred and requests for revision. This am I steeling myself for. I hope, however, that it does at least make it to be peer-reviewed - some manuscripts are rejected out-of-hand by the editors as not worth the time for review. That would be quite a blow if that happens. I hereby cross my fingers and hope that it doesn't.

::hope hope::

I do feel a very lovely rush of excitement at this, however. Hee. Writings.

And now, I must go and start revisions on the second of my two articles that I'm hoping to send off this month. That one is nearer and dearer to what I'm seeing as my thesis work, and my name will be the only one on it. Commence frenetic efforts.

Having recently been through my own first bout of peer-reviewed journal submissions, I know what you're feeling. I had my former advisor's name on it as well, but the field was slightly different than his usual one, so I'm not sure whether it had as much impact.

Knowing you, though, I find it hard to believe that it'll be just rejected out of hand, and anything else you can deal with, really. What's this one on, anyway? I'd be interested in hearing about it, if you want to drop me a mail or such.

Only another month and a half before I start up my own grad school thing! I'll be back in MD before then, and we should definitely meet up. I'll be dropping by the lab, in any case. Best of luck with this!

Actually, if you want to take a peek, it's up on the papers section of my web page:
http://www.wam.umd.edu/~llsp/papers

"When will they have ever learned? The role of caretaker input in the acquisition of the past participle"
It's basically the study I was running last summer on what kind of input is actually most useful in helping kids recover from their morphology mistakes. The results for this stuff were basically, "No, no....you really can get the job done just with positive evidence. Yes, corrective evidence is better. But you don't actually need it."


Only another month and a half before I start up my own grad school thing! I'll be back in MD before then, and we should definitely meet up. I'll be dropping by the lab, in any case. Best of luck with this!

Hurrah! Let me know when you'll be by. I'm teaching every day till August 19th.

Hey, that's interesting, thanks for the link. Best of luck with the paper; I too know the feeling of pending nervousness. But I have confidence in your work!

How awesome! Good luck. I hope it gets past the cranky editors of doom.

Good luck with the review. Your attitude is similar to a philosophy that a friend of my taught me. If you can prepare yourself for the worst, you can deal with the best.
