Which editor to select? Never pick a friend or a colleague; it is an easy way to risk losing your friend. Pick someone who gave you an impression of being fair and level-headed when you met them at a conference or heard them give a seminar.

In fact, at my DPhil interview, one of my interviewers actually stated that there was no point in my joining this research field as a physicist as the existing methods were just fine. I do not really know why I was not put off, but rather regarded it as some sort of odd, eccentric person I had met.
This was obviously highly oversubscribed, clearly fulfilling a need! With a colleague, I received one of these awards; the proposal success rate was only 1 in 30! I only ever made one complaint to a funding agency research manager about the handling of a research grant proposal I had made. There were six referees’ reports, all except one were very favourable, which stated, ‘I don’t care how the protein crystal structure is going to be solved, and too much of the proposal is devoted to that, indicating that there is a worry that it cannot be carried out’.
