SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I will be second author on a research paper (published in a respected publication/journal), and I was wondering if it is appropriate to give a presentation on the study, at one of my campuses undergraduate presentation seminars/opportunities. I worked on the project from start to finish and was very involved, knowing the ins and outs of the whole project. I am second author, being the younger of those who worked on it and the other person being a grad student (Im perfectly fine with it, they deserve it and worked hard). I was wondering, being second author, it is acceptable to prepare a poster and present, and if it would be a good thing to add to my resume for grad schools? Thanks for your time.
