Then again, I guess it's easy for the publishing plan to get derailed, so maybe secondary journal participation is a safer bet. And I can see merit in some of the above comments about not being the odd man out.
For OCI you probably won't have time to have done that. You get to put journal on your resume even when you haven't done anthing.
If you're in a position for publishing to be important, you should be gunning journal shit.
