Hi Everyone,

If youre one of the co-authors of a journal- accepted review article, would that mean a lot?

I'm not sure what you mean by "a lot" but obviously any publication is better than none.

(the caveat being if the research is fraudulent or dodgy, then you might prefer to be left off Posted Image )

true, its obviously better than none. What I wanted to ask is- if youre tryin to get into grad school, would a published paper, though its a review article only, help your application a lot?

Did you mean having a review article as opposed to a published paper based on undergrad thesis or an honours project?

well, the thing is, i dont know if a lot of undergrads in the US are able to publish their undergrad thesis. and i dont know if grad school applicants (with no experience in grad school yet))have published papers or not. and i dont really know if having a published review article is "impressive" or not

point is, im tryin to weigh whethr my application is competetiv or weak

I don't know about in the US, but here in Aus any lab experience and publications will strengthen your application for a scholarship PhD position.

A review article is counted as a "published paper" even if it isn't primary research, and is a review. Is that what you mean?

yes. thanks. im still new. i was wonderin if review article is also considered as "paper". i thought only papers that show new experimntal data are considered as "paper".

Thanks a lot for clearin it up.
