从审稿人问题学习如何写文章之1 文章的科学意义

2013年06月25日,星期二

很多人花很多时间创造了一项“技术”,例如某算法。但是这样的文章能发吗?多半会收到这样的审稿意见:这文章有科学价值吗?。

例子一

What is this paper really about? How has scientific understanding of the Universe been improved by this work? Even if this is a “techniques” paper, it needs to demonstrate CLEARLY how well the technique works now and will work for future data, and how that future work will improve scientific understanding of the Universe. The answers to these questions are not clear in the paper, and without clear answers, the paper is likely to be rejected by a journal referee.
修改:

Additions to Introduction to emphasize:

  • This paper emphasizes methodology to 。。。
  • Show simulations to test

The conclusion section has been re-written:

  • ‘demonstrated a range of strategies for 。。。(现状1)
  • List the strategies that are used。。。 (现状2)
  • Point out success in reaching 。。。。(成功1)
  • Point out that this is good enough to 。。。(成功2)
  • Point out that we did well for 20 Mpc, but need improvements for 200 Mpc (不足

经过上述修改,文章具有价值的结构就有了,剩下的就是如何忽悠 成功1 成功2 了。。。

例子二

In other words, I feel that the authors need to bring the results obtained for the  xxx into context,
discussing implications and insights on yy populations. Even if the aim of the authors is to demonstrate the applicability of their method, they need to discuss what new insights are derived from their analysis in our understanding of xy galaxies.

升级文章:
Comparison  xxx  with yyy

Comparison xxx with yyyy .

we suggested that Ellipticals contribute a significant population for 。。。。, explain the puzzle of 。。。。 and confirm the nature of 。。。 by our methodWe also argue that our  models are needed to investigate the detail properties of xxx .

1. 如果project的目标在一篇本领域的review中被提到但是没有提到任何相关工作。这证明计划的重要性和创新性达到水准了。

LAL 学习

LAL 学习
https://www.lsc-group.phys.uwm.edu/daswg/projects/lalsuite.html

LAAC Data Analysis Training
LALSuite
installing LAL and LALApps
LALSuite Git
LALSuite is comprised of the following components
LAL: Core gravitational wave analysis routines
LALFrame: LAL wrapping of the LIGO/Virgo Frame library
LALMetaIO:LAL wrapping of the MetaIO LIGO_LW XML library
LALXML:LAL wrapping of the libxml2 XML library, currently unused
LALSimulation:LAL routines for gravitational waveform and noise generation
LALBurst:LAL routines for burst gravitational wave data analysis
LALInspiral:LAL routines for inspiral and ringdown CBC gravitational wave data analysis
LALPulsar:LAL routines for pulsar and continuous wave gravitational wave data analysis
LALInference:LAL routines for Bayesian inference data analysis
LALStochastic:LAL routines for stochastic background gravitational wave data analysis
LALApps: Collection of gravitational wave data analysis codes and pipelines utilising the LAL libraries

安装 LALSuite
https://www.lsc-group.phys.uwm.edu/daswg/docs/howto/lal-install.html
某机器上第一次安装
先安装有一些别的软件确保LALSuite安装
必须有些手动操作设置    To setup your environment to use the newly-built LAL
分别安装LALSuite 里面的每个包  (顺序和网站上说的不同有时需要不同,因为包的依赖问题,要有耐心测试。。。)
LAL
LALFrame
LALMetalO
LAMXML
LALSimulation
LALBurst
LALPulsar
LALInspiral
LALInference
LALApps   如果不是需要远程登陆本机器操作, 就不用  –enable-condor

最后 别忘了 把 source ${LSCSOFT_ROOTDIR}/etc/lscsoftrc 加到     .bash_profile  里面!

安装LALSuite  note  from Matt
cloned the lalsuite directory (e.g. using “git clone xilong.fan@ligo-vcs.phys.uwm.edu:/usr/local/git/lalsuite.git”)
installed all the parts of lalsuite (lal, lalmetaio, lalxml,lalsimulation, lalinspiral, lalburst, lalpulsar, lalstochastic, lalinference)
checked-out the lalinference_burst branch using “git branch –track lalinference_burst origin/lalinference_burst”
git checkout lalinference_burst

–If that’s what you’ve done then you should currently be in the lalinference_burst branch. You can check what branch you’re in by typing “git branch” and it will list the branches – there will be a * next to the name of the branch that you are in.
–If you want to run codes that have been developed in this branch then you should probably reinstalled all of lalsuite from this branch. So, you should perform “make uninstall” and “make distclean” in all the parts of lalsuite, and then reinstall all of them.

Note: Having the release versions of LALSuite installed from MacPorts will lead to build errors if you try and build LALSuite from the git repository. If you are planning on building LALSuite from git do not installed these ports.
