I'm in the process of writing my first paper as a PhD student and was wondering if I could get some general advice regarding the following:
- How many Journals to consider submitting a manuscript to and how much impact factor plays a role here. Some say aim high as possible.
- How much time should I spend actually writing the paper? Do I continue working on other projects at the same time as writing the paper?
- What other considerations should I keep in mind after submitting the manuscript? e.g. should I be writing up another manuscript for another journal-just in case?
I would be very grateful to hear about other people's experiences, etc with their first publication. Of course,I've read a lot of things on the internet and I've spoken to my supervisors too but I believe you can never learn too much. My project in the mathematical sciences with applications in biology/medicine.
