I had a research project that has been sitting for more than a decade without finding a home in a scientific journal, so I decided to post it on my blog instead as an experiment. Yesterday, I posted an original scientific paper here on my blog. I proposed a project that came out of my Ph.
I had been studying leg motor neurons in crustaceans published in Faulkes and Paul There was this one paper about spiny lobsters that just did not jive with everything else I had found.
To my surprise, I got the fellowship. I used it to move to Australia and do a post-doc with David Macmillan. It was a wonderful experience. But what happened to the proposed project was David Macmillan asked me to pick up another project in addition to the leg motor neuron one Faulkes and Macmillanand help mentor an Honors student Patullo et al.
I had setbacks in getting animals. Spiny lobsters were too hard to work with. All hail the Queen Victoria Market! Then, once I had the slipper lobsters, I made serendipitous discoveries that I just had to pursue. I did the leg motor neuron project around all of those others during that post-doc.
Clearly, I had lots to show for my time in Australia regardless. This has been sitting around, waiting, for over a decade, to see the light of day.
Especially because this was the project that I had gone to Australia to do in the first place. It was rejected every time. I may post the reviews later in a separate post.
What could I do? There are no slipper lobsters around the South Texas coastline that I know of. There was no way that I can get any more slipper lobster data.
For a long time, I thought I would try to do the anatomy of the leg motor neurons from another unstudied crustaceans, like a shrimp. It would turn it into a broader comparative paper with more data. Plus, even if I did get more data from another species, that would take even more time — time spent when I have enough other irons in the fire.
How long would it take before this project would be out? I still considered submitting the manuscript, more or less in the form I posted, to yet another journal and trying my luck.
I was considering submitting it to the forthcoming PeerJ when it opened, for instance. Is that any better than burying it in my back yard if I had a back yard?How to self-publish your academic work.
