It is 6:30 PM now.
From 7 AM, I have been working on the final check of the paper for submission to a scientific journal. The experiments were done by my students.
In the morning, I checked all the details in the paper: spelling, calculations, abbreviations, order of sentences, logic, etc. In the afternoon, I sent e-mails to coauthors with the manuscript and figures (for the manuscript) attached. Then I started the on-line submission at 1 PM.
On-line submission sounds easy, but as everybody imagines, it could take time. The toughest part today was submitting figures. A PDF file was formed after the submission to check the results, and figures always appeared strange. I changed formats and sizes and Yes, I finally finished the submission half an hour ago.
Today’s lunch was a bag of “BalanceUp -Creamed Brown Rice Bran – Maple taste”. I show you the bag opened.
Whatever “Creamed Brown Rice Bran – Maple taste (Maple syrup from Canada)” is , I was not hungry with the energy of only 179 kcal. Fibers are not digested, and it might have worked?
Tomorrow is Autumnal Equinox Day, a national holiday. It is good that I finished off the submission.
P.S. In 30 min, I received an e-mail from the publisher. The paper was not accepted because the manuscript was not numbered. I inserted page numbers and resubmitted with a reply to the comment.
I hope everything is OK now.
