Down Goes Number 3

This is a reasonable facsimile of my "I just published 3 papers in under a year" happy dance.

And just like that, item #3 can be crossed off of my Not-So-Bucket-List list. Which item is that? you ask. Only that I have 3 articles published in 1 year. W00t w00t!

The best part is that I’ve completed this task sooner than required, and it was completely unintentional. That is, it only took 10 months (October 2010 through July 2011), not a year, and I really wasn’t trying to accomplish this goal. I knew it was on the list, but it wasn’t a priority.

Having finished early, this now means dear readers that there is now a good chance that I might even be able to strike item #4 off of my list as well. This of course assumes that I can get 2 more papers published within the next 2 months. A challenge for sure, but within the realm of possibility.

And here’s the extra awesome bit; I’ve already submitted a paper with my friend, colleague and fellow nerd Dr. Mandi. And I should be submitting another paper before the end of August. The likelihood of actually getting 2 more papers published in the remaining few months of this year is slim, but it’s possible. And that is good enough for me.

Anyway, for your entertainment I provide a list of the papers that have been published in the last year, followed by a list of the papers that have or will be submitted for peer review in the very near future. Here’s hoping at least 2 of them are accepted for publication before the end of September.

    That’s geek-tastic! Omission of the epic polio paper is noted. 😉

      That’s not officially published yet. Nor will it be peer-reviewed (a requirement of item #3). If not, then I would have had 3 with the PA stuff. But those are mysteriously missing from my list as well. LOL.

        Oh gawd I wasn’t serious! LOL. Those things don’t count…in more ways than one…
