Research Interests

Areas of Interest:

  • Catch 22: What constitutes "meaningful intellectual contribution" to a scientific publication? Junior researchers are often asked to share authorship rights with individuals who have not made significant intellectual contributions to a scientific publication. The purpose of this study is to identify factors and misperceptions that lead junior researchers to add names to the list of authors of a publication.
