I was recently asked to join a manuscript which had been rejected by a journal. My revisions ended up removing 100% of another author’s contributions (i.e. a different approach to the statistical analyses). In my field, this author’s contributions were sufficient to warrant authorship – now that their contribution has been removed, should they still be included as an author? (To the extent that it matters, we’re all perfectly happy to include them because of the work they put into the paper. I’m curious about the publishing ethics)
