Academic Authorship

Some people want to be sharks, not only scholars. They think their names should be on the author list, if their students work on a project, though themselves do not; or if their resources are used in research, though themselves have no contribution. They care so much what they can get from what they own, the students, the lab, the fame, the power, more than the excellence of research. By playing this kind of career game, they win more funding, slave more students, exploit other researcher’s work and build their own empire.

There are many implicit rules to enhance this game. A professorship is not only a position to do research, but also a resource to exploit the other’s work by acquiring the authorship.

  • Hi,

    I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

    I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

    God Bless You.

    Melissa K. W.

    The site *eBay misspelled auction search site. It pretty much covers misspelled auction info and can really save a bundle using this.
