I would like to know more about some (unspoken) rules in scientific research publishing. More precisely, i am interested in computer science field.
- Can someone expect his papers to be published in any top level journal (M23, M22, M21) without completed bachelor studies or master studies?
- Is it true that professors have better chances their papers to be published than graduated students or it is just a justification for academic exploitation?
- Can someone who works in IT industry or is unemployed expect his papers to be considered or even published?
- What are the differences between the first author and other authors? Taking the academic exploitation into account, is it profitable for a student to be the second author after the professor?
