Other Publishing Book Review - PhD student

  1. Jan 2, 2017 #1
    Hi All,

    Happy 2017!!

    I am a first year PhD student at a well respected research university for Fluid Dynamics research in England. My PhD research is in the field of Geophysical and Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics.
    I am interested in gaining some writing, and publishing experience and I thought that a good way of doing this would be by trying to submit a book review to a journal.

    Does anyone have any experience with doing this? I would like to hear not just from supervisors but also students.

    Any advice on finding a journal to do such a thing?

    You should discuss this with your advisor. These kind of things is why an advisor exists in the first place.

    Sorry if i was not clear, I have spoke to my supervisor and others in the department. I was more looking for further thoughts on the matter, particularly from other students.

    And what did your advisor say? What exactly is it that you want to know that your advisor couldn't tell you?

    Nothing in particular, I just feel that in these matters it is always nice to have multiple opinions, and experiences discussed. I feel that many people who have done this previously may have additional insight to this, as opposed to my supervisor who hasn't been a PhD student in many years.
