Trying to determine what journal to submit her paper to, ScienceWoman does her research. Considering things like time to publication and impact factor, she makes some graphs and charts of her decision-making process. Some of the comments advise her to try PLoS ONE, but she's not sure, since she's still a junior investigator and doesn't think her type of research has seen publication there before. "Sure, I could be the first, but as a junior academic, I need to have people in my field reading my papers. It may be a good place for other disciplines though," she writes in the comments trackback.
