There is no objective method for determining authorship or author order. Common sense and journal guidelines indicate that authorship is merited for all those contributing “significantly” to one or more core criteria. Attributing authorship is therefore ultimately a principal investigator’s decision and relies on an honor system. Author order is also important, and typically follows one of a small number of norms. This chapter discusses the issues surrounding authorship and author order.

Keywords:   Gift, guest, ghost, credit, fair policy, author order
