Questions related to Drafting
Literary academics who work with me have been expressing growing interest in ethnic writers who write original stories in modern-day, British English (as opposed to their local simplified/broken versions). I have the starting draft of my potential paper The Mis-representation of Ethnic Cultures in Modern Literature. Please share ideas and good reads in this discussion, and express your interest in co-authoring with me. Some of my colleagues say the authors we shall be quoting will also have the opportunity for their books to be made into film. On the other hand, there is a lawyer in my group who would be using the the paper to sue authors that misrepresent ethnic tribes, to pump any dollars charged back into the tribe. Please say something.
Caricatures are probably the oldest form of pictorial humor, where caricare in Latin means “to overload, or exaggerate.”
The main stylistic devices here are distortion and exaggeration, and the main subject, famous people.
The term Cartoon originally comes from the Italian word ‘cartone’ and means a strong, heavy paper or pasteboard. It denotes a full-size drawing made on paper as a study for further drawings, such as a painting or tapestry.
Punch applied the term to satirical drawings by publishing some parody drafts for frescoes (also called cartoons) and making the term’s new meaning permanent.
A cartoonist’s craft may force them to limit their originality, because they have fewer than 10 seconds to grab the attention of viewers, and, in fact, to tell whole stories.
Seems like an obvious answer is there since you have a link to upload the file. But the real question is where do I get such a file to upload? The article requested is a book chapter and all I have to show for it is my original Word draft sent to the publisher and the galley proofs from same. Is this what i should upload? Please help. Thanks. Jim Florence
Dear Colleaugues & Allies ~ I just posted the final prepublication draft of an article on the nature of the Langlands Program, RH, P v. NP, and other "open" problems of pure maths, number theory, etc., and the proofs. I would deeply appreciate your feedback and suggestions. So, if you are interested, please send me a request for access to the [private] file, for review and comment. Thanks & best of luck etc. ~ M

I need help with the sampling questions.
I am doing qualitative studies; can anyone help me with how to draft a questionnaire to collect information about the impact of covid-19 on teachers' performance.
It has become trendy for wide range of researchers to use Assistant tools that boost their research paper to be accepted then published. the review process will be more easier with these tools like Grammerly and Quilbot.
The question is " Is it legal and ethical to use a similar tool that classified as artificial intelligence to gather information and create ideas. this tool is able to write a full literature review about research topic within 15 mins. ""
the second question is " what will be the evaluation criteria for review article with the presence of this tool? the review article will be unworthy to be publish so we can allocate the publishing procedure for research articles only. this step will enhance the quality of research directly."
I attached the result of draft produced from the algorithm perfectly.
As draft genomes are not truly (100%) presenting physiological or genetic properties of an organisms. I am reviewing literature but in many cases, whole genomes are used.
my question is can we use draft genomes for comparison?
When you sit down to write your first draft, ask yourself these questions to ensure your readers know what they can expect from your article:
1. Why did you do the study? 2. Why is the study relevant or important? 3. What methods did you use? 4. What did you learn? 5. What can you conclude from this?
I just finalized my draft of a Paper which I would like to hand into a good (min B) journal. I just wanted to know, is there a service/support I can ask to review my paper critically to improve it and enhance my chances of publishing it?
Thanks in advance for your help with that :-)
Hi folks, any suggestions about good websites/software for communication and file sharing within a research group? I'm thinking particularly for people who don't all work in the same uni. Somewhere that I could share drafts/works in progress, have discussions, perhaps host profiles, bios, etc.
Options I've considered:
-starting my own site using Squarespace, Ghost or something similar (but these are technical and perhaps more suited to 1-person sites?).
- using Slack or some other project management software (but these are perhaps not ideal for outward-facing web pages?).
Any suggestions appreciated!

When EIA draft 2020 was proposed it met with a huge amount of criticism, even govt of India asked for suggestions for its modification on the MOEF website, but due to the COVID pandemic, the issue was not pursued by the media and the voices opposing slowly died down.
As few changes in EIA 2020 Draft were having serious environmental concerns, its approval can prove to be a disaster for the environment and biodiversity and a boon to business houses. Unfortunately, I don't have any real news on its approval. If anyone has any, real information on it kindly enlighten me.
A Conservation Biologist Explains the Problems With the New EIA Draft 2020
I am currently working out a PhD topic and working with tight timelines.
I am thinking of doing a research on how 'wokeness' and heightened sensitivity to racial and gender is impacting team cohesion and productivity.
Some studies have argued that having a racially diverse team for example leads to less workplace complains. I however think that this could simply be a symptom of workers doing just their bit, avoiding socialisation lest they risk being 'mistaken'.
1. Can I get some opinions regarding this area.
2. Will it be more appropriate to pick one end (Either gender or race)?
3. Can I leave this open to workers in General or narrow down to a sector e.g Care homes or Academia?
4. Could someone please help me with how such a topic would be drafted?
It is stated that as per my final draft of the questionnaire, there are 9 groups making 197 comparisons comprising one full questionnaire.
It would be psychologically difficult for one person to respond to 197 comparisons at once on the spot. My question is that is it possible that I ask one or two groups or maybe three group comparisons from one person and another two or three groups’ comparisons from another person; in short 3 or 4 people will fill out one questionnaire. Is it the correct way? Is any issue will be created in the calculation of AHP?
Therefore, your valuable input is requested in this regard, an earliest response is highly appreciated.
If you have any research paper related to my question, share it, please.
What if, when census study conducted and population changes when the final draft of thesis is ready? if the researcher has conducted the senses study but the at the time of final draft the population has expanded.
Let me share the problem.
Suppose 10 banks are working in our area at the time of selection of problem. say in the year 2019. Researcher has taken the all the banks and done the senses study. The period of the degree is 3 years. after 2.5 years the number of banks has changed from 10 to 12. in such case how to write in sample selection ? What are the justification a researcher should give ? What are the reference of the same?
For free, or ar a low budget price.
I am not sure if it’s the same at every institution, but our supervisor only reads our draft once, or each section once.
I overthink, and fear I would do really bad, and when the draft is returned to me, I would need to do so many edits. So to prevent this, if another academic read and confirmed I was on the right lines, I would feel better.
When we read the draft paper (PRISMA) , we can see that all sections of this type of systematic review specialized for medical purposes. Can we adaptive this type of paper to another fields?
I am working on MWCNTs based Supercapacitors, here is the initial draft. Would like to get some feedback on the article. Can you guys take a look at this.
Currently, I'm preparing a draft paper about a Personal Learning Environment in engineering education and its impact in learning, motivation, and self-efficacy in the students. However, the current literature shows that PLEs have a close relationship with e-learning but my work is about PLEs as a kind of "portable" laboratories for engineering education and not in the scope of e-learning.
So, please, Can you explain me the main features of a Personal Learning Environment from your perspective as researchers?
Thanks in advance.
I'm currently drafting my dissertation literature review which aims to solve an novel protein structure, we have some evidence of the function of this protein molecule (TCR ligand) but not completely sure. My main responsibility in the lab should be using the collected X-ray data to get the model (hopefully) and compare it to other similar molecules. May I ask what hypothesis in this situation should I construct? should I use a null hypothesis like " Protein X's structure reveals no similarity with other TCR ligands?"
Any advice would be helpful, thanks in advance!
In a Mechanical Draft cooling tower, Fill is the most important component,
I request your good self to spare a few minutes for me for the step by step procedure for the design of fill.
If you are working with MDCT, then kindly share Geometrical and Technical specifications of the different components of the cooling tower used by you.
Numerous countries in the global south, particularly in Africa, Latin America, and south Asia, have struggled to grasp the technology transfer process. In these countries, technology conceptions, incubation, and entrepreneurship, as well as startup drafts left on desks prior to initial trial and implementation— Why? Probably. Keeping in your mind the political ecosystem and economic instability are two issues that these countries frequently confront, while other world leading nations' occasionally face, too. What, in your thinking, are the causes behind this failure? And how do they uproot the root causes--either in collaboration or independently?
What lesson left over from Asian tigers catch up development to the rest of the world--herein?
I am currently working on creating figures for my manuscript - Due to the design of the study I chose to use GLMMs. However, I am now struggling to find some codes on how to illustrate my results. I am measuring the effects of forest degradation (continues variables) on community structure with sites as random effect.
I have used ggplot2 on my first draft, but I was advised from a reviewer to show some partial plots and also to plot the model together rather than use only singular linear regressions .
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
This is a draft at the moment but thinking about it for a long time. I want to see if local populations' perceived threat, stigmatising attitudes and xenophobia (IVs) is related to immigrants emotional exhaustion and isolation (DVs). In this model, IV's will be collected from local people where they live with immigrant community and DVs will be from immigrants from the same neighborhood. I know it is problematic but how should we design and test such a model in a proper way.
I Have read the "COMCOT: a Tsunami Generation Propagation and Run-up Model (August, 2011)". COMCOT is updated as compare with USER MANUAL FOR COMCOT VERSION 1.7 (FIRST DRAFT).
I need the latest COMCOT version. if anyone have latest COMCOT version then share it.
Thanks in advance
I have a medical student colleague who was recently diagnosed with a rare condition and wanted to draft a case report for publication. However, the attending physician who made the diagnosis was not interested in collaborating on the report. Considering that the patient had access to all patient files and had found other medical professionals (who were not the diagnosing physicians) to collaborate on the case report, is it OK for the patient to draft their own case report without inputs from the diagnosing physician?
We have been working on :
Draft review about the Triaxial equipment .

Can anyone please recommend to me some high-quality articles on utilizing artificial neural networks (ANN) to model PV/T systems? Please also recommend me some MATLAB and Python code/equations for calculating the exit temperature.
I recently read an article "Pros and cons of using ICT in teaching ESL reading and writing" which is related to my current research. I would like to discuss with you my understanding and questions regarding this area as below:
1. I like the way that the authors finalized the questions with several steps such as first draft, content and face validity, second draft and so on.
2. Would you please share with me how did you decide samples if you are the author?
3. I realized the majority participants are over 30 years old. Some of them are even more than 50. I am thinking if the age will be a factor impacting the result.
It will be much appreciated that you could give me some suggestions or insights in this area.
Thanks, Ying Laura Liu
I have generated draft assemblies of different strains of E. coli and I would like to place them in the E. coli tree, is there a web tool that can find the closest strains to a given assembly, similar to the one available from Salmonella (https://lfz.corefacility.ca/sistr-app/) ?
I have an argumentive essay to complete. I am currently in the drafting phase. I want to go toward the discussion of pirating these parts from unwilling donors. I will be going over the rubric again to be certain that I can go in this direction.

Thank you, I look forward to reading your articles.
We have a residue management project running here in our station, inside this project we want to measure draft power variation due to different factors. In this case, we need to measure the power used during using the machines. I am expecting from experts around the globe working in related fields to share with me devises available to measure such a moving loads. I have heard something about moving load cells but am not clear about this as well.
Our lab has been collecting longitudinal survey data on the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic on the local community. We have so far collected multiple waves of data over the past year. During our last survey administration, we inadvertently sent out a draft version of the survey to 100 people (out of 500+). We stopped the survey and then sent out the corrected final version to the remaining people. For the 100 who completed the draft survey, we invited them to complete the corrected final version. During the retake, there was a major event that happened in the locale where we were collecting data. About 50 people completed the retake before the event and the other 50 after the event.
We are trying to find past studies that have capitalized on major events happening during data collection. For this study, we are specifically wanting to find a study that has baseline data and then follow-up data completed either before or after a major event. Would anyone know of any such studies?
Now a days many researchers are depositing their research paper draft as preprint in various web-based option, those are not peer reviewed yet or may submitted already or will be submitted in a Journal. This is similar like unpublished data those many Journals discourage to cited in a paper/article. What is your opinion?
A methodological paper is in a draft stage and suggestions have been made to include practical/managerial implications of the new approach. What, therefore, constitutes managerial implications in a methodological paper? How does one go about writing such?

Vasily Grossman, the brilliant Russian writer of the Second World War, in Life and Fate and Stalingrad (Third draft) poses three clear approaches to life and fate, leaving the reader to decide which one to choose.
The characters Gardi and Mostovskoy hold that they are absolved from responsibility for their actions but for different reasons. Gardi believes in the forgiveness of God while Mostovskoy believes his actions are determined by historico-economico-political forces so all-determining as to be the equivalent of God.
Ikonnikov insists he has free will and therefore is responsible for his own actions, no matter what force he is subjected to. Ikonnikov proves his point by condemning himself to death through his refusal to construct a gas chamber for the slaughter of Jews and others.
While Ikonnikov makes a moral choice by refusing to engage in the destruction of others to save himself, do the others'' choices and perceptions leave them merely puppets?
I am looking for cargo ships information such as (beam, length, capacity, draft). is there an official authority to get this information?

Well, writing a research manuscript is an intimidating process for many new writers and one of the stumbling blocks is the beginning of the process and creating the first draft. Please share your experience, I will surely motivate and inspire others :)
bioRxiv, which is operated by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, provides a free online archive and distribution service for unpublished preprints in the life sciences. Authors can post unreviewed preprints on bioRxiv, to make their findings immediately available to the scientific community and receive feedback on draft manuscripts before they are submitted to peer-reviewed journals. Are there negative aspects from preprint publication and if so what are they? How much does this help advance science and research efforts? What do you think?

I wrote a draft of a paper "Fossils and artifacts telling evolution of language" and want to submit to Nature.
May I upload it to find co-authors for improving it?
If I upload, would that influence Nature to accept my draft?
I am using "essay assessment" as a third data type in my research. There are 80 essays: first draft and final draft.
a. In order to get a general picture of students' level of writing, should I use the final draft score only or the mean of first and final draft score?
b. Total score (Content: 6 points, Language Use: 6 points, Organization: 5 points, Punctuation: 3 points) a student can get is 20.
Should I find the percentage of each part: If a student gets 3 out of 6 for content, should I say this student gets 50 out of 100 for content? how should I show the general picture of student success?
Can someone provide us the methodology/ies for preparing the study on traditional rural homes?
We are working with the team on traditional rural architecture in several regions is Montenegro, the SEE Region. We are interested in preservation of cultural heritage and negative transformation of the rural environment. With this specific question, we are interested to explore general and specific (sustainability-related) characteristics of traditional rural houses.
Can someone suggest us the methodology for preparing the study on traditional rural homes? For examples the forms of Interviews that you used in your studies; the equipment that you used (for the Materials and Methods) and similar. Some studies or papers related to this you successfully used as a guidelines. Finally, we are also interested to include one senior researchers to assist us in with final version of the paper, after the filed visit (that is undergoing) and the first draft.
I am drafting a plan on how to assess the capacity and learning needs of clinical nurses to do research. Thus, any suggestions about methods or tools which can help me answer this concern will be highly appreciated.
I am looking for a platform where PhD students would feel comfortable to share their papers at a very early stage of research and could receive a helpful feedback.
I have sequenced a cyanobacteria genome by Illumina and I have mapped the reads to three closely related strains. In all the three, I extracted a consensus sequence, which I regard as a draft genome. Interestingly, in the three consensus sequences, gaps occur in different regions. I think that I can chop the sequences from one draft genome and fill in the gaps in the other provided that they in the same region, for example, in draft genome A the gap is from 1-200, while in B the region 1-200 is fully mapped. Is it possible to chop this sequence and fill the gap in A? If yes is there a quick and precise method or tool to do this? I am new to command line inter-phase, I usually use Unipro Ugene, but any advice from any approach will be helpful, I can find a way how to make use of it.
5 August 2020: Looking for assistance on a review of the calculation of my work on Kendall's W and Tau. This method made more logical sense in that its heavily used for survey responses. I also converted the categories of the numbers to ratings of 1(highest score) to 5 (lowest score). I ran this through JASP as well, and over all it looks like this is statistically insignificant.
Attached file Tab on is the survey with some quick calculations below, and Tab two is the Kendall's W work for the 11 events I'm focusing on.
Answered Kindly by the four below. I will have to give it some thought what way I plan to go based off suggestions below.
Research question: What Impact Does Triathlon Training Have on the Service Member Passing a Military Annual Fitness Exam?
Having just finished Research 202 I'm doing extracurricular research, and I'm wanting to understand, or rather, gain better familiarity with writing/working on projects. I have already completed, what I feel was a thorough, literature review on the topic. I had drafted/disseminated a survey to my target population (N=1,693), and by the close of the survey I have only n=15 respondents. All 14 respondents consider themselves Triathletes, and 1 considered non-triathlete. Therefore, I do not have enough participants to compare group 1 to group 2. I Think I could switch to a qualitative study, but before I change up a lot of work I'm wondering a couple questions.
What would the way forward be?
Is there a statistical Test for a singular group?
I also looked at Crossfit in literature Review, should a cross examination of a similar study be performed? (Since there is now experimentation, and the surveys is asking for averages of Fitness test Scores).
I am a Ph.D. student, at Walden University, who is exploring the same topic, therefore, we may benefit from collaboration with each other other.
I am currently drafting a review to include studies on the MOFs based materials for CO2 electrochemical reduction. Papers interested include:
1) fundamental studies on the stability, selectivity of electrodes;
2) recommendations of stability evaluation methods;
3) means to improve the stability and selectivity
If your works fall into the above categories, I appreciate it if you can list them in your response. If you have some papers to recommend, please do so as well. I will go through them and cite the qualified ones in my report.
Many thanks for your attention.
There are some criticism about the 'fake' participation among local community just to satisfy the government or donor's agenda to show that there are names and meeting have been organized prior to the final drafting of any municipal budgeting plan. I am trying to crack out this situation by showing the difference between a 'genuine' and 'fake' participation in the process.
