On the eve of my trip to the AAPM meeting in Minneapolis, the manuscript proofs for the paper that was accepted to JNMT arrive in my email.
I have 48 hours to review the proof pages, make any corrections, address a list of questions and revisions and then send everything back.
I'm glad I got the proofs, because that means the paper will appear in publication soon. However, the timing is less than ideal. Now instead of making sure I have everything packed and am all ready for the trip, I'll be spending at least a couple of hours going through everything and making sure it's all ready to go.
Well, at least I still have tomorrow morning to finish getting ready. I can also email the changes back, which will save some time.
