samarth Posted July 28, 2011 Share Posted July 28, 2011 Hi, I find that discussing ideas with my advisers or peers, dilutes my ownership to extents that I am sometimes left out. For example, I discussed an interesting idea with my adviser but my adviser felt it would be a deviation from my current projects and we could not immediately find some solutions. He promised we would comeback to it later. Some months later, I found out that he has thought of a work around and assigned that project to some undergraduates and has started publishing with them! I subtly confronted him but he maintained that it was a different thread than the one I was discussing, even so, having put the seed in his mind, I would have liked him to have me in the loop. Nevertheless, I would like to ask the forum, How to professionally convey ideas to adviser and peers so as to retain ownership but get good advise? Thanks.
