I may not be a Doctor (or The Doctor), but don’t call me ‘Mrs’.

I’m still a few – or many – months away from being a Doctor. If it ever happens.

However. A word of warning to the predatory, vanity publishers currently chasing me and my unpublished (and still unrevised) thesis:

Don’t call me ‘Mrs’.

You may call me ‘Ms’. Or ‘Nat’. Or ‘To Whom It May Concern’. Or ‘Dame’ (I’m not a dame, but it’s a pretty cool title).

…that said, I still won’t let you ‘publish’ my thesis. But I’ll be slightly less snarky about it.

…actually, I probably won’t. Scammers preying on desperate, struggling, un/der-employed early career academics don’t warrant any particular politeness.
