Inadwrimo is over, but the work never ends.

I did a not-so-stellar job of meeting my not-so-stellar goals for writing and research in November, but I did get some stuff done. Done! Accepted!!!!! Finish revisions on the paper-that-won’t-die (goal: November 13) Done! Internal release time application (due November 18) Read some, but not nearly enough. Read around proposed grad student topics enough to…

I even stole the title from Lady Scientist, because I am just that original these days. I spent the week teaching, advising, mothering, and making some progress on my InaDWriMo goals for the month. As of last week the goals stood like this: Done! Finish revisions on the paper-that-won’t-die (goal: November 13) Done! Internal release…

What I’m working on

I’m not going to apologize about lack of posting over the last month or so, and I’m not going to make any promises for the future. That said, here’s what I’m up to for InaDWriMo this month. Here’s what I wrote at ring-leader Dr. Brazen-Hussy‘s kickoff post: Finish revisions on the paper-that-won’t-die (goal: November 6)…

Reviews and the junior faculty member

In 2009, I’ve done ~9 reviews of journal articles, including two in the past week, and not counting the 1-2 more looming in the next two weeks. During the same period, I’ve submitted one 1st author manuscript, still in review, but probably only going cost 3 reviewers some time. Anyone see a mass balance problem…

In print at last

Look what showed up in my most recent issue of the NWSA Journal (NWSA=National Women’s Studies Association)? I’m in print! W00T! This co-authored paper is in the current issue, which is a special issue on “Inclusive Science” that came out of this conference last summer. I’m pleased to be in the same lineup with Cindy…

I’m off visiting a set of archives for the rest of this week – Karen Tonso and I are trying to cook up a cool research idea (to expand into a manuscript) about engineering and identity in relation to this project. However, my attention was recently drawn to an article by Peg Boyle Single in…

The best sort of co-author?

Today I’m working on revisions prior to resubmittal on a manuscript that has been a very long time coming. While I’m busy with the revisions and reference formatting, I offer up this multiple choice question for your discussion. You’ve got a manuscript that you think is ready for submission to a journal. It’s been through…

Here at Mystery U, we are evaluated on a calendar year basis, so in early January I turned in an up-to-date CV to our departmental review committee. Then I waited, and waited, and waited some more. Finally, a few weeks ago, I got a chance to see what the review committee thought of me, and…

The following email appeared in my inbox yesterday, and I thought some of you might have some more thoughts to share. Dear ScienceWoman, I recently discovered your blog, and have a question regarding academic publishing. I am just now entering a PhD. program, and plan to get married in about 2 years. Given the nature…

In the past few weeks, Scienceblogs has quietly debuted two fantastic new bloggers and a new channel (off the main page) related to information and library science, including open access and open science; digital and print publishing; information property and ownership, and more. Christina Pikas is a science and engineering librarian and a doctoral student,…
