My recent activities got me thinking - should we be called researchers or journalists?
I just corrected proofs for one of my papers for Applied Thermal Engineering, finished writing an invited paper for the same journal (during my vacation, I might add) and have to start writing another invited paper for Energy - The International Journal. All this leaves me with very little time to work towards my paper for the biggest conference in my area PSE/ESCAPE 2006, which is due in Nov.
I am spending way too much time disseminating the results of our research rather than producing more. Need to find a balance!!!!!
