I did summer research work with a Professor who is not my adviser. He gave me a big topic (big enough that doesn’t help you to navigate to a specific area) and but didn’t contribute much.
Now after the summer, I continue to work on this without his guidance, and got some good results. I am thinking of publishing the paper. I don’t know if I should ask whether he wants his name on the paper.
Also, I was wondering what happen if he decided to block my paper from publishing? (I knew he always wanted the paper to be submitted to Venue A, but I want to submit to Venue B). Does he have the right to do so?
This Professor is from the same school of mine.
