I have a forthcoming book on a given topic. I would like to extend a section that deals with a significant topic per se into a full (though not very long) paper. Would the paper be desk-rejected?
The chapter includes the following on that subject: - background - methodology - applications
The paper would provide a background and methodology (similar, obviously), but I underline that this paper brings new relative to the forthcoming chapter: - further applications - a more detailed presentation of the methodology.
Is it a long shot? It is worth expanding into a paper?
In the worst case scenario, I can just leave it as a working paper and present it as part of the book at some conferences, I guess.
