Who qualifies to be an author?

Who qualifies to be an author? | Publication Support | Scoop.it
Dear Dr. Eddy,
I am going to submit my first paper for which I am the main contributor. During the course of this study, a senior post-doc in our lab helped me troubleshoot and suggested some key experiments. He even helped me analyze some data. I would like to include his name as a co-author on this paper. Also, my research advisor wants me to include the name of one of our collaborators who provided some cell lines that we used in this study, but I’m not sure about this. I would like to know whether there are any standard guidelines for deciding who should be considered an author.

Peer Review and Editorial Decision Making at Journals

Peer Review and Editorial Decision Making at Journals | Publication Support | Scoop.it
The peer review process is essentially a quality control mechanism. It is a process by which experts evaluate scholarly works, and its objective is to ensure a high quality of published science. However, peer reviewers do not make the decision to accept or reject papers. At most, they recommend a decision. At peer-reviewed journals, decision-making authority rests solely with journal editors or the journal’s editorial board. Indeed, it is the journal editor who is considered to be central to the decision making process.

How You Can Successfully Transform Your Paper From a Scientific Manuscript to a Published Paper

How You Can Successfully Transform Your Paper From a Scientific Manuscript to a Published Paper | Publication Support | Scoop.it
During the process of research, researchers immerse themselves in studying every minute detail of the topic of their choice. Once their research is complete they begin collating their findings and presenting them in the form of a scientific manuscript. Most scientific manuscripts are submitted to journals as articles and this is where an author's real struggles begin. Those who are new to the field of academic publishing might not be prepared for the complex process of manuscript preparation and submission. The intricacies of the publishing process are demanding and could easily discourage novice researchers. To deal with the process more efficiently, researchers can seek expert editorial help during and after the manuscript preparation process. If you are a researcher looking to get published, here are some tips that could help you transform your paper from a scientific manuscript to a published paper.

The pitfalls of "salami slicing": Focus on quality and not quantity of publications

The pitfalls of "salami slicing": Focus on quality and not quantity of publications | Publication Support | Scoop.it
What is salami slicing?It refers to the practice of partitioning a large study that could have been reported in a single research article into smaller published articles. In other words, it means breaking up a single research paper into their “least publishable units,” with each paper reporting different findings from the same study. A set of papers are referred to as salami publications when more than one paper covers the same population, methods, and research question.

The Pitfalls of “Salami Slicing” Focus on Quality and Not Quantity of Publications

The Pitfalls of “Salami Slicing” Focus on Quality and Not Quantity of Publications | Publication Support | Scoop.it
A paper will have a greater chance of publication as a full-scale study, rather than a fragment of a larger study. Focus on the quality of your publications, not quantity. Salami slicing to increase the number of publications on your resume might only end up sabotaging your research career at a later stage.
