Publish, Then Perish
It's not my intention to turn the site into a Saga of the Job Hunt, although that will be a recurring subject for a while. (I'd like to thank everyone for their expressions of support in yesterday's post, by the way. Much appreciated). The immediate future is fine - I'll still be at the workplace into December, and my lovely-parting-gifts package from the Wonder Drug Factory looks like it can take me a good way into next year if needed.
One interesting side effect of all this has to do with the side project described (elliptically) in the Birth of an Idea posts. Weirdly, the rapid end of normal research work at my site has opened a window of opportunity to get some of my off-the-radar samples looked at, and I plan to take advantage of that. I'm setting up a good-sized run of experiments to go over this weekend, for example.
I also hope to write up these results as quickly as possible, and for a better journal than I've appeared in to date. So here's a question: which journal? I think that this has a good shot at Angewandte Chemie or JACS, but I'm also considering really going for broke and sending it somewhere like Science or Nature. Can anyone speak to the reception that organic/medicinal chemistry manuscripts get in these venues? And are there other places I should consider (PNAS, for instance)? I realize that it's hard to judge this sort of thing without knowing quite what the manuscript is about. . .
