How to not Perish: Critical Questions about Academic Publication


It is very clear that publications are the coin of the realm in building an academic career.  But the issues surrounding publication and authorship are anything but clear.  For example:


Is it plagiarism if you change the words from a paper you read?  

Who deserves to be an author on your Advisors/PIs paper? 

Who decides who the first author should be?

What if my Advisor/PI asks me to review a paper that he/she was asked to review; is that allowed? 


This session by Joel Roselin, Associate Director of Research Compliance Education, will address questions around publication that affect all graduate students and post-docs.  Information on ethical and practical issues in academic publication will be supplemented with case studies and Q&A.
