    I will actually have to come out there in the next few years. Got quite a few friends, including you, that I haven't seen in ages and I have never visited Norway, so. Hmmm, next summer, maybe? Nice wee holiday?

    Awww, yay. How is your Norwegian now? My Icelandic seems to have improved immensely these past two years, even the Icelanders have commented on it.
    Norway is a pretty cool place to go on holiday IMO. Let me know

    Actually, at the party last night someone commented on how much my Norwegian had improved since the last party lol. I feel fluent. I don't know if I think in Norwegian all the time, but I do when I'm at work!

    Guys, how pushy do you think you can afford to be with a slow journal?:erm:
    I sent them an article in January, got no reply for about three months and then politely enquired if they could give me a rough estimate of by when I'd get a decision. To my surprise I was actually given an exact date, with the added note that 'hopefully' they'd get back to me 'considerably sooner'.
    Now the problem is that I still haven't heard anything and the date I was given is next Monday, and by now I don't seriously expect them to keep their promises anymore. I feel really stupid having to prod them again, and I'm also a bit annoyed, because I shouldn't have to chase after them like this, and it's unfair of them to leave me hanging for so long. At least if they said no I'd be able to rewrite it and send it off somewhere else, but as it is I can't do *anything*.

    Maybe it says a lot that the academic who set this question also gave me an 8 point mark scheme for a 10 point question, but the candidates' answers are uniformly horrible. A lot of them have misunderstood the question in the same way, but I'm genuinely giving more 3s than I am 5s, and I can count on one hand the number of 7s and 8s I've given so far. (Been marking for almost an hour)

    I personally wouldn't poke them again until Tuesday morning.

    Hopefully they will reply before then or on Monday, but I wouldn't contact them until the day after the date myself.

    I wasn't really going to start prodding them any earlier than that, I'm just a little exasperated that it looks as though I'll have to chase after them again. And presumably I'll again be told that I'll hear 'before too long' and kept waiting for a few more months.:sigh: Allegedly it's because their reviewers are taking their time, but I'm not sure if I believe that...

    Nyah, I'm so used to Icelanders ignoring all kinds of deadlines that it doesn't really bother me so much anymore.

    Just make a wee song and dance about them missing the deadline.

    I know how you feel, though. It is annoying when they get like this, but hopefully you get published and it'll be worth it. Would this be your first article? What journal is it for? *is nosy*

    Yes it would be, but I'm not really getting my hopes up. If they were madly keen they wouldn't have been so sluggish, right?:erm:

    One that you won't have heard of.:p:

    Sorry to hear about the bad news, TLG and hobnob :sad:

    Hylean, can you PM me your email address? I'll send you the Psychological article on Bourdieu.

    That conference was epic. I think it highly unlikely I'll go to another one as good for the rest of my PhD :daydreaming:

    Now, back to my PhD chapter! Due tomorrow :work:

    On it's way to you now.

    Glad you enjoyed the conference, ****e about the work today, though.

    I've been hearing horror stories about funding over here in Iceland as it's that time of year. Not looking forward to my application next year.

    I've spent the last day and a half reading and re-reading the same four pages of this chapter and I honestly can't see any way to fix them in the way my supervisors want :banghead:
    Ready to throw my laptop out the window.

    Only in the UK, though, and the editors for that journal are all based in various parts of the US.

    Personally I would wait until Wednesday and then tell them that if you don't have an answer by the end of the week you'll be submitting to another journal.

    Well, to be honest, I'm busy with my conclusion at the moment, so it's not as though I have the time to spare to rewrite the article and resubmit it before I've sorted that out... Plus I'd like to at least have the reports, and if I storm out in a huff I'll probably never get to see those.
    I'm basically just annoyed because they've kept me waiting for such a long time now, and I think they owe me a reply of some kind, even if it's 'erm... no'.

    One of my tutors submitted something to a journal and didn't hear back for either 2 or 5 years (can't recall). This is the most prestigious journal in her field, too.
