In-review paper: in gradschool statement

  1. Nov 30, 2009 #1
    I am an undergraduate with an article in peer review right now (first author of three) by one physics journal. I am also applying for grad schools at this time, and I wanted to know if there are any ethical issues or discouragements about mentioning the general contents or abstract of this paper in my statement of purpose. The majority of my undergraduate research is summarized in this paper, so I would think it is crucial to discuss.

    I think issues would only arise if you took the work in that paper and submitted it to another journal or conference as unsubmitted work.

    Discussing work that you have submitted to a journal as a part of a graduate school application is fine.
