I have heard that journal papers are more valuable than conference papers generally in other fields. Yet I read that in Computer Science field that conference papers are more valuable.
- Hence I want to clarify exactly what is true?
- Also if an extra importance does come to conference papers vs journals why so?
I m in the middle of my research work of AI pattern recognition and I am in the process of deciding to write a journal paper or a conference paper. Already in the field of my research alot of publications exists, yet I am doing a partial novel research, a tiny change to methodology. I want the end user to get an understanding of my data, also I want to get a permanent research job, then I wanted to know will publishing a journal or a conference paper look better in my cv? In the case of explaining my data to end user a journal seems the best option with a greater page count than a conference paper yet in terms of what the internet states the conference papers are better for CS Field, a conference paper would get more value to my cv than a conference paper. When I mean value in aspect
- to my CV
- and other aspect to provide the end user a complete understanding of my research
