I’m a PhD student.
An associate professor in my department has established a collaboration with another university. This other university has people who have developed a product. The professor does not own the product, but is one of the collaborators with the university.

I recently made an article that involves this product, and included authors who helped produce this work. The professor in question is not an author, because he was neither invited to the paper, nor did he contribute. I simply did not need him for this paper. On the day the paper was camera-ready, I received an email from the professor stating his disappointment that he has not been involved with this publication.

This person is not involved in my supervision team whatsoever. It seems to me that he expects any publication that is related to the product to have his name on it.

Is this acceptable?

I am writing a journal paper and I am the main and first author. The author bio section of that journal has only 100 words and we are 6 authors in total. The word limit is very short to describe the research area of each author. Will it be a good strategy to only include the first author description and research area in the author bio ( with the consent of other co-authors )? Will it look good in general from the reader perspective?

I also looked into some papers from the journal. Some have only the main author description And some papers have the research group description. The authors in my paper are not from the same research group and hence we don’t have the same research focus expect the research presented in this article. So not sure what is a good strategy to handle this

I understand that in a lot of big-lab fields it is common for the principal investigator to append their name to a paper even if they did not write the paper, design the experiment, or collect data since they spend energy securing funding, and managing the whole lab. What about for small labs?

What are the requirements for a supervisor to be included as an author on a paper, as opposed to just appearing in the acknowledgements? If you are working on your own projects independently of your supervisor, but using funding provided by your supervisor (how does this change when the funding provides resources versus just your salary), are you suppose to add them as authors or just acknowledge the source of funding?

I’m familiar with the general notion of Academic Freedom.

But I just ran across the phrase “given his/her academic freedom”, which is a concept I’ve never run across before. It seems related to students writing solo papers, and etiquette around a student publishing without their advisor.

In general, are there aspects of academic freedom that don’t exist until they are be bestowed on people? Tenure is about the only thing that may fit that bill, but that seems typically framed in terms of job guarantees. Do students pass any similar hurdles?

I have completed my research paper, where it’s only me who has completed that paper and helping hand was my professor.
Now, one of my friend, want me to put his name as co-author in my Paper. Also, i haven’t told my professor about paper publishing because as he’s interesting to put his colleague’s name too.
IS there any why of avoiding any above activity or i should put all the names they want from me.
1- the only problem is why should i include name of others if they haven’t participated in m work.
2- is it good to publish paper as single author

Is it legal to publish a document under an authors name without the author seeing the manuscript?

What if the author’s manuscript is radically altered to the extent of say the opposite of the original and is published without authors seeing the manuscript – would that be legal?

The question of course is not if it is unethical but rather not legal.

What does “moral rights” cover?

I am a nascent academic in a medical field. I want to start publishing early, even before my master’s. I see people like me do a lot of systematic reviews, though they collaborate with one or two people with them.

I want to make systematic reviews alone and get published in an open-source journal.

Is it possible? Please also recommend where I can find people to make reviews with other than my workplace.

We have a system in which, to get accepted in the program, you have to have a published research because that will add some points to your application and you will have priority.
Anyway, some investigators started to grant authorship on such publications for money, gathering a number of people and write their names on the paper as co-authors in return those people paying them.

I was naïve and I paid for such a thing. Please don’t judge me. Now I know it is academic misconduct, so I want my name to be dropped from that publication. How can I do this?
