I find myself in a complex situation involving citations between a published paper and the thesis from which it originated. Here are the key details:
I submitted my thesis for examination and, during the 8-month review period, published a paper based on one of its chapters. The paper was also accepted and published. After submitting my thesis, I joined a new institution, which is the affiliation listed in the published paper. Given this backdrop, I have two primary questions:
I passed the thesis examination recently and I am now in the final phase of revising the thesis. The paper was published two months ago. Should I revise the paper (by sending a request to the editor) to cite my thesis, or should the thesis cite the paper? How should I handle the affiliation discrepancy? If the thesis cites the paper, it may appear as if the majority of the research was conducted at the new institution rather than the original university. I'm concerned about how to ethically and accurately represent the relationship between the paper and the thesis, particularly considering the change in affiliation.
