In a world were academic excellence is judged on the number of publications you have, where and when should you be credited when you are not the principal author? Where do you draw the line between being a co-author or an acknowledgement? These are the questions addressed in this great blog.

Yeah this kind of stories happen all the time :(
It's sad but if you discover something or develop a new method, do not share it, do not make any presentation at conferences before your paper is out or at least in press.
We've had issues in our lab as to who should be could be co-author. Now when I start a new collaboration, the question of co-authorship is mentioned right from the start. Better be clear than rely on people's kindness.
And no, I am not bitter, experience taugth me that. :rolleyes:
Theory is when we know everything and nothing is working. Practice is when everything is working and nobody knows why. Here, we combine theory and practice. Nothing is working and nobody knows why.
