I am currently a PhD student and I was invited to co-author a review paper on my field. Would it be ok to co-author a paper outside my PhD work without my supervisor as a co-author? My supervisor is supportive of all my work and networking I’m just worried about this kind of move now.

I’m presenting a poster at a conference in the coming months and I unintentionally left out authors (the senior authors) on my work due to my lack of familiarity with the submission program on the website. Unfortunately, I did not go back to correct this until it was too late and the deadline for adjustments had passed.

I’m now faced with presenting the poster without all authors listed on the poster. I’m fairly embarrassed that I let this happen. I’ve reached out to the organizers and was told no more adjustments can be made. How do I handle it from here? Do I just disclose during presentation that I unintentionally left them out and credit them at that point?

I was part of a research group in a research institute I called ‘X’. In this research we used a very interesting, colorful technique so I take some pictures for myself that are very artistic. Now I want to present them in a Scientific Photography contest organized by the same institute ‘X’. I signed a confidentiality agreement with the institution and my research advisor. The thing is I need an author’s written authorization for reproduction of the images in order to participate in this contest. At first I thought I was the author since I was the one who took the photo, but seems that in the agreement I signed says that all products of this investigation are property of the institute ‘X’ and I don’t know if this has something to do but the camera was also property of the lab. So, who should I ask for the authors written authorization? Or I don’t have to ask for it at all?

I have a two-word last name which gives as full name something like “Mike Adam Pince” (just an example) with “Mike” the first name and “Adam Pince” the last name (no middle name).

I have published few conference papers and I noted that Google scholar is referencing me (author’s name in the results) as “MA Pince” which I’m sure other people would do too.

Now that I’m writing a journal paper I’m thinking of adding a hyphen to my last name “Adam-Pince” to avoid any confusion with others authors.

I wonder what’s the common practice in such a situation.

Say I have three names viz… Firstname Middlename Surname. My first name is quite long. My supervisor is requesting that I only use my Middle and Surnames. This occured with my first manuscript with him (he has two short names). Although, I have one publication (with my full three names) before studying under my current supervisor, I have tried to do this. My ORCID account contains the three names. IEEE membership name emphasizes my Firstname and Surname. My question is if I would like to use only my Middle and Surnames now, what are the things I must do and precautions to take to ensure consistency and avoid complications in the future.

I am currently a 3rd-year undergraduate majoring in Mechanical Engineering. Till now, I have co-authored one paper for the reputed conference and another paper which I have authored is under review process in the journal. I am also working on another paper. I want to pursue MS in the USA and the main reason for my concern is my current CGPA (8.00/10).
Do top universities mainly focus on undergraduate CGPA (more than that of publications)? Or they have equal importance?

we are resubmitting a paper. There is the case of a coauthor who was part of the project from the beginning, assisted to all group discussions, gave intelectual feedback, but did not do experiments/analyses. He also wrote a small part of the Discussion. What should I write regarding his/her contributions?

My question is, how can I publish my results without name of my supervisor as a co-author? Do I need their name in my paper? Is it suspicious if I submit an article without his name?
I have a problem with the head of the lab that I performed the experiments there. He wants to be the coauthor but in my point of view he does not have substantially intellectual contribution to my work. He also, told me that he would send samples for the measurement to another lab. But, he did not. Whenever I followed up about the measurement of samples, he postponed to another month. It is almost two years. My supervisor is worried that the guy may make trouble for his profession. So, he said that I can publish the results that I have without his name. The article is just have two authors, another student and me (PhD graduate). Do you think that journals will publish our results or they will suspect about it?
