Lecture 5 Ethical Issues in Authorship Typical authorship list G. N. I. Clark, G. L. Hura, J. Teixeira, A. K. Soper, T. Head-Gordon (2010). Small angle scattering and the structure of ambient liquid water. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. 107, 14003-14007. Typically senior author goes last: this is code for the PI . First author is the primary position for the young scientist. Acknowledgements are used to recognize important technical or logistical assistance, but is work not in of itself novel research. GNIC and THG thank the NSF Cyberinfrastructure program, and GLH and THG thank the Department of Energy, for support of the work presented here. We also thank the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center for computational resources . We thank C. Huang for providing us with the structure factor data reported in [(16)].

Lecture 5 Case Study [1]: Authorship Prof. Killinger is a professor of cell biology at BlueGold University who has a policy about authorship that he discusses with each new member who joins his lab: only those who have made a significant intellectual contribution will be included on any paper, and I am the final authority about what defines a significant intellectual contribution, should a disagreement arise. I will be included as last author on any paper that is the result of research done in my lab . David is a post-doc in Killenger's lab and is working to characterize a novel organelle that has been identified in a protozoan parasite studied over the last several years in Killenger s lab. Based on biochemical studies of the purified organelle, David suspects that it may possess an as yet unidentified mitochondrion.

Lecture 5 Case Study [1]: Authorship Haruko, a technician in Killinger's lab, has worked very closely with David on his studies related to this organelle. She has done most of the trouble shooting for the experiment, and has developed a novel method of isolating organelles from the organism. Benson is an undergraduate student who has recently joined Killenger's lab. Benson participates in the final experiment of this project, which shows that a protein normally targeted to mitochondria in other eukaryotes is targeted to this novel organelle in this parasite. These data suggest that the novel organelle may indeed be a mitochondrion.

Lecture 5 Case Study [1]: Authorship Killinger encourages David to submit the data for publication as quickly as possible. David does the writing, gives the paper to Haruko for review, and then presents the data at the lab meeting the following week.
