I have a master’s degree in computer science. I wanted to publish my thesis as paper because I got a good grade, and I because I want to get accepted for a PhD degree by a top-200 university or to get work as a TA at a university.
I used existing resources and applied them on a different data set, but the results were not clear and need optimization – which will need more time (I'll do it if I have a chance to get a PhD or getting a job in this matter).
I wrote the paper according to my naive knowledge in publishing and the whole field. My goal was not acceptance, but rather getting feedback and a taste of how things work. I sent my paper to a conference; of course it was refused. I sent it to a journal, who refused. The feedback was that my paper is a draft, has language mistakes, and most of references were old. Of course I asked my supervisor for assistance, but things didn’t went well for many reasons. One of these reasons is that we have no clear results although the method was very good and promising on the long run.
I was wondering if I can get assistance from other parties like doctors from other universities, but it didn't work for me. Maybe this is because I asked doctors from high-ranked universities so they may already have a heavy load.
What should I do?
