I have tried different options in word to preserve high fidelity in images when converting to pdf. I use the word option to 'print to pdf'. Nothing works to preserve image quality and some of the images in the pdf look blurred which is nothing like what they looked like in word. I already set default resolution to high fidelity and for images not to be compressed.
Please, can someone suggest a way to make the pdf like the original word, or another software that can enable this. Thank you

Rh Rj Thank you for your comment.
No, I haven't used Foxit. Free trial is generally a good idea. Usually it comes with truncated features.
Personally I would prefer OEM. Acrobat and Adobe reader are from the same company. I am also not sure about the price difference between the two, that could be final the deciding factor.
Cheers.

You can ask your peers or professors to review your paper. Then find the right place to publish it. You can start of with national level conferences, which often gets conducted in many universities. Then once you gain a level of confidence, you can proceed to international conferences and journals.

It is common that we have significantly contributed to writing general reports (e.g. WHO reports) that are expected to result in several papers afterwards. This has especially been the case during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Afterwards, there are two scenarios:
1) You continue to contribute significantly to all the papers derived from the primary report and write the better part of them.
2) You stop contributing after the report is delivered and another team writes the papers.
What would you do if you get a message from the affiliated organisation (that claims the ownership of the main data or hired you during the report development) informing you that you are not the first author of the papers in each of these cases? Please feel free to expand and build upon the discussion.
P.S: To be clear, I am NOT talking about a thesis as the primary report.

SAGE publication requires the following information about the data of our paper. May I ask if anyone knows how to get a "syntax file" for SmartPls?
Relevant answer
Answer
Hello Fatemeh,
Some journal editorial policies do ask for setup/syntax information, with the idea that an interested reader could attempt a replication of the analysis (or, at least understand how the analysis you're reporting was elicited). Sometimes, manuscript reviewers want such files for these reasons as well.
There is a simple way to export the set-up for your analysis in SmartPLS; see this link: https://www.smartpls.com/documentation/functionalities/export-project
Good luck with your work.

I understand there could be some bias as these reports are prepared by the companies, to what extent can this bias be included in the analysis?
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Pearl
First of all you must have an idea of the bias that these reports could have. In general they would be expected to be favorable to the company.
Second, I agree with Florentina and August. These qualitative data must be analyzed in the framework of a triangulation (multiple sources of data). In a triangulation process you will be able to see if parts of these reports converge with other sources (eg employee interviews, external reports) or there is a significant discrepancy.

Jorge
