Planning out your publication agenda

One Bright Star posted on her long-term publication planning list yesterday. While she is mostly talking about her trajectory toward tenure I think it is still a good idea to be thinking about this while you are still a grad student.

I just had lunch with a tenured colleague who rocks! She totally gets the "I feel anxious ALL OF THE TIME, even though I value balance" thing. Seriously.

Before she got tenure, she did the SAME EXACT THING I do: checking off a list of publications. -- Imagine the set of publications you want on your vitae when you go up for tenure. Make that list and a timeline for sending them out for publication, and then work backwards to plan when each data set should be collected. Even if the nature of the projects change somewhat and the publications cannot be precisely predicted, imagining the trajectory of your research program helps make it feel managable (as long as I allow for flexibility in the long run for shifting). Have at least one paper under review and one in progress at all times. Check off each paper as it's accepted and celebrate each paper's acceptance.

Maybe this seems obvious, but I haven't talked about my List yet with anyone else, other than my husband.

I thought I was a being ol' control freak for having this list. Spouse is tired of hearing me recite the list at home. ("First I have this paper and the next paper builds upon that and then the follow up study looks at a similar behavioral issue with a different population and then I'm changing directions and then I will write X number of papers about that and ...") Hearing that someone I work with also has this list and thinks of it similarly and uses it to manage anxiety just totally rocks. I thought my list was a little crazy, because it's too hard to predict 5 years of work, but it's been working so far in order to manage myself and my uncertainty about making progress.
