I am currently employed as a postdoc in Europe.
I am writing a survey paper reviewing the literature on the topic I am investigating as part of the project I am working on.
A member of faculty in the lab said that I should try and find ways to get the most out of the survey paper, in addition to publishing it in a journal. He wasn't specific as to what else I should do with the work.
My question is therefore, how can I get more out of the work that I am putting into a review paper?
Does he mean to use it as part of a funding proposal or to publish a short version in a conference followed by the extended full paper in a journal?
