Speaking pragmatically, does it look odd or amateurish to write "this work was not supported by any funding" or something like that on a paper? Would it seem to suggest the author is, as I say, an amateur/non-academic, or is not doing enough research to secure grants consistently?
The context of the question is, I'm currently between grants and wondering if I should wait to publish this paper until after I get a new one. It is a silly concern, but still important to me. However, I'm wondering more generally what the perception is of papers or authors who are not supported while publishing.
