Hey guys,

I'm posting this for a friend who lost access to his SDN account.

"Does anyone know if there is a difference between how a technical paper publication is viewed in comparison to a normal publication?"

the variation within both fields is so wide, it would be hard to analyze without specifics. I would speculate that authorship in a peer-reviewed scientific journal would have more value. However, both would be a plus and neither, unless it is some ground breaking work in a highly regarded journal, will not have such a huge impact as to be the deciding factor in acceptance. Lastly, if you already have a publication, the question is moot as you cant change the past and you have the record that you have. Worrying about "what if" or hypothetical comparisons is a waste of time, effort, and energy
