Who: Tomi Kinnunen, Lauri Mehtätalo, Jarkko Suhonen, Ville Hautamäki,
Ilkka Jormanainen

Schedule: Each presenter will talk max 20 minutes, and we'll have time to discuss after each talk and at the end of the seminar. For PhD students, 1 cp = participation + writing a learning diary (Jarkko will
provide details on Thursday).

Abstract: For many junior researchers, getting papers through (especially, to journals) can look a hopeless task. Sometimes, th reviewers seem to give nonsensical feedback, sometimes the reviewers
are conflicting each other, sometimes they act aggressively, and even the editors seem to make strange decisions. It also takes awfully lot of time to hear any news whatsoever. Why an earth it is so complicated and what can I do to improve my chances getting a paper eventually through? In this seminar, we will not be able to provide all the answers but hope that the examples will illustrate (and help to tackle) some of the problems and stimulate further discussions.
