So, I just ended my sophomore year of college. My mentor in the lab I work in has told me that I will be first author on a paper we want to write and then publish in Schizophrenia Research and that I will be third or fourth author on another paper he will be writing to be published in another journal (more prestigioud than Schiz Research). My question is this: how big of a deal is this for admissions purposes? Is this gonna make me much more competitive or just a little bit more competitive? My mentors in the lab like me, I think, so I will be getting good LORs. Schizophrenia research is a middle-prestige journal (#12 in psychiatric publication), so will this be ok? Should I aim for a journal like Biological Psychiatry, which is much more prestigious? Any thoughts? Thanks.
