1 or 69 As in a publishable PhD article

NB: Read Danger from not doing full As yourself before this post.

A publishable PhD article needs 69 As (including 2n +49 = 2*10 + 49 As, where n = 10 "ideas" in the essay, and 2n + 49 includes n ideas, n - 1 "idea connections" and 50 duplicates of a "big synthesis" collection of 100 of these breasonings) to ensure it can be published, alternatively 1 A, if you can find a means of "duplicating" the A 50 times necessary to reach "product" standard without doing it yourself, by asking Heads of State to do it for you, employing others to do it for you, or praying.
Note: the student as employee should write the first 10 breasonings per A, and the student as manager should write the last 90 of every 10 As, expecting the rest to be completed "pro-rata". If you wouldn't like to do any work at all, you can pray for a "specific A" on your topic.
Note: the figure n = 10 used in the above example was drawn from a scene called "Pedagogy X" in my play, in which 10 algorithms, each of which have a "specific A" of from 10-100 breasonings, connected by 9 "connective As", where "A", an A grade essay that shows the idea connects with ideas with the same number of As, is an examination of the topic specifically described.
To avoid doing more than one A to deserve A for an article, prevent "big ideas" using the argument you shouldn't do unnecessary work:
PhD articles should be "cutting edge", which can be achieved by developing on current cutting edge research chosen from articles in your field, e.g. "Philosophy of Language" for the topic "How many levels away do synonyms change meaning?" in "Computational English":

Learn how to write a "breasoning", the functional unit of an A, which is an object in a sentence, described by it's x, y and z dimensions, visualised by thinking of how it is removed from a blue cloth removed fom a test tube, symbolising how it is involved in an algorithm, or step-by-step action:
