Yay! I am so very excited.
I've been hibernating and working pretty hard on a paper; turns out it's going to get published by some obscure and probably boring journal, which I am thrilled about. But my paper is an INTJ's dream! Cogsci/education system/etc. I've actually really enjoyed it so far.
Question to anyone who would know:
What is the protocol when you get accepted as an undergrad to publish in a journal? Are you supposed to ask your prof to coauthor with you even though you're doing all the work? What if, such as in my case, your prof isn't quite finished his PhD himself?
I was accepted (with my partner who has vertigo and has let me take over the paper thus far, though I assume she'll want to be more involved now that we're getting published) based on my writing alone. Am I supposed to ask my non-PhD prof to coauthor? Can I just leave it and have it be only our 2 undergrad names? Do I find a prof with a PhD? Anyone know how to handle this situation?
Edit: Prof has read a draft and given us a few written paragraphs of advice and a few minutes of talking for direction and weaknesses, so he has been involved, though he hasn't written anything or found any sources.
