I have a particularly unusual problem that puts me in a bind. I am a first year Masters student at my faculty, and recently my supervisor have pushed me to “update” her previous student’s unpublished paper (few years old, so need to find newer papers to cite inside and format it properly for submission), add my name onto it as coauthor and publish it to IET. I feel its unethical, although my supervisor have assured me permission will be obtained from the original author. Feeling uncomfortable with this practice, I delayed doing that paper.

What are the implications if I proceed with it? Would it pose any problems to me in the future? I’m inclined towards not doing it though, but I want to hear expert opinions on this kind of practice. Thanks

I applied to 4 US PhD programs and I’ve received 3 rejections and 1 waitlist.

I also applied for a scholarship for $25,000/year x4years and just found out that I got it.

I’m thinking that I should update the school I’m waitlisted at because the scholarship could probably help my chances of getting in. I have some questions I’m hoping I can receive some input on here:

  1. How should I go about updating the waitlist school about this scholarship? Should I do this in writing or by phone?

  2. Should I inform the schools that have already rejected me about the scholarship–is it possible they may change their decisions based on this new information? And if so, how should I approach telling them?

  3. The scholarship would require me to research a certain (widely researched) disease and maintain one of my MSc supervisors (at a different institution) as a co-supervisor during my PhD. Is it likely that the school(s) will mind this (especially the second part)?

Thanks in advance for any and all feedback!

The student has consented to the recording. I know that one-party consent laws in Texas means it was legal to record, and the recording shows the people’s voices, but not their images or names. The material may also be newsworthy, yet it has the potential to damage the advisor’s reputation because it displays their disrespectful behavior.

I don’t believe it would constitute intrusion, because it refers to a well-known matter (i.e. not private) that was recorded on campus in the advisor’s office during an appointment. However, the advisor did not consent to being recorded.

To answer this, I also need to know if an advisor at a public university is considered a public official? Let me know if you need any more information. Thanks!

I submitted my paper to conference proceedings and still waiting to get the feedback within 2 months. When I uploaded the paper they asked me to fill the name and email for each co-author in the paper. So I did as they ask and I noticed that they sent an email to all mentioned authors (including the office of my professor and his secretary) that the paper is received and still under review.

What I want to ask is If the paper rejected or sent back to major reviews will my professor get an email from them as I will get?

This question already has an answer here:

I am currently a Canadian grad student about to publish my first paper. However, I really dislike my real legal name, to the point where very few of my real-life friends know my real first and last name. This is mostly because I come from China, and my legal name is a difficult-to-pronounce transliteration of my original Chinese name, which itself sounds very tacky and funny in Chinese. Even my parents are embarrassed at how they named me and use a totally unrelated nickname to address me even in Chinese. (to use an English analogy, I go by “Jake” when my real name is “Alexander”)

Is it possible to publish consistently under a pen name that has no relation to your real name? I am not seeking to use it as a throwaway name for a single publication, but rather to simply be known as a different name. I don’t even intend to hide my real name – it’ll likely end up being in parentheses on my personal webpage or something. I just don’t want to see a name I’m embarrassed of on every single thing I publish.
