Could trusting a fellow collaborator land you in hot water? For Carsten Carlberg, who held dual appointments at the University of Luxembourg and University of Eastern Finland, trusting his advisee resulted in eventual dismissal after fraudulent data was uncovered in a manuscript where he was listed as the seventh author. According to the University of Luxembourg, while his advisee was guilty of manipulating the data, as senior author, he remained responsible for the paper and its findings. Issues of authorship are vitally important in academia. Indeed, promotion and tenure are heavily dependent on the number of publications and grants attributable to a researcher or scholar. Along with increased emphasis on cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural collaboration, is authorship attribution as straightforward as "he or she who writes the manuscript receives first author"? This session will discuss this and other questions concerning authorship and collaboration as well as introduce other famous (and infamous) cases of authorship disputes.
