So, for the few people in the world who are excited by in-situ infrared spectroscopy of microwave heated catalytic reactions, have a look at my paper.

And when I say my paper, I mean I wrote it! So I'm quite proud, even if no-one understands / cares.

I looked and I have no clue what it's about, but congratulations none the less!

As papers go, that's actually pretty accessible [Smile]

Congratulations on the publication! Hopefully I'll be able to make the same announcement myself in a week or so...

I started reading it, then thought I'd better read those I'll use as reference for my master. So I went and did something else. [crazy]

Many congratulations to you! (And I hope to see the day I'll be able to say the same!) [Big Grin]

Congratulations indeed, Dr. littlefish. [Wink] Mind you, I've not even tried to open the document, as I know it's completely outside of my area of expertise...and I believe you linked us to it back when it was unpublished. [Smile]

If I can ever say the same thing myself ("Published!") w.r.t. a dissertion, you'd be welcome to read it, but it'd probably be equally different. [Wink] I did write my undergraduate thesis paper such that most folks could probably read it, but that's an entirely different story. (And I tend to try and make my writing 'accessible,' but that's not nearly as possible for a very serious publication.)

Oooo!!! Pretty picture! [Applause]

/me is entertained by even the smallest things.

I'm sure your paper is quite intelligent and well-written, but you're right, it's above my head at this hour of the night. The graphic just grabbed my attention and held it...

I probably linked to my thesis, which is online. This is the first proper journal article though.
They also mentioned that it might get promoted as a "hot article", which means that they like it so much that they use it in publicity to show what excellent papers they publish. We did consider trying to get it put on the cover, but they make you pay extra to cover the printing costs.

Not that pretty - the colours have got washed out from the original. I have the printing proofs, which are better, and the original, which is best! Things have got a bit screwed in the RGB to CMYK to RGB conversions.

Great job, littlefish. [thumbsup] Seems like you're more of a "big"fish, now. [Big Grin] I remember the excitement of being published for the first time. I hope you have many more opportunities. [Smile]
