In research science world, one of the achievement indicators is to publish a paper(s). Well I guess it can be applied as well to another field of study. In my situation, I can graduate (or at least survive) when I published at least one international science journal. I finished one semester from the PhD study (I know it is still a long way to go) and here I published one paper….yes, from first semester wrapped… 😛 Does it mean I can graduate soon? I DON’T THINK SO! *keep crossing fingers for the next…(at least I’m still survive).
