Authoring and publishing manuscripts for publication may expose junior scholars to challenging professional and ethical situations. Faculty members are often advised to determine authorship order when they start a manuscript. While this is wise advice, there are times when it may not be possible to follow. Dilemmas for authors can arise throughout the publishing process, for example, negotiating with editors and reviewers. Dialogue and discussion of various challenging authoring and publishing scenarios will help faculty clarify these issues and develop a broad repertoire of possible responses to the inevitable publishing dilemmas.  This workshop will interest the following audiences:

  • Faculty members new to publishing and those who seek to refresh their knowledge of authorship and publishing issues.
  • Medical students, residents, and especially fellows who are new to publishing, need the background for making authorship decisions, and want practice with realistic scenarios.

During this workshop, participants will:

  • Identify resources for solving authorship issues
  • Encounter and discuss real-life publishing situations through scenario cards
  • In small groups, craft solutions to real-life publishing dilemmas

At the conclusion of the workshop participants will be able to:

  • Explain guidelines for authorship.
  • Identify the range of dilemmas that arise in authorship and publishing.
  • Apply authorship guidelines and strategies address challenges and decisions during the authoring and publishing processes.
  • Identify resources that may be useful when working with a mentee to help with authorship decisions.
