Determining manuscript authorship credit and order may seem straightforward in theory, but in practice issues often arise. During this session, participants will work through several common scenarios with authorship challenges and hear from successful scholars and research mentors on how they prevent and resolve these issues. At the end of this session, participants will be able to describe common authorship definitions and biomedical research authorship guidelines, reflect on their own experiences related to authorship, and identify strategies to prevent and resolve authorship challenges with their own research.
Learning Objectives:  At the end of the program, participants will be able to
  1. Describe common authorship definitions and biomedical research authorship guidelines
  2. Reflect on their own experiences related authorship
  3. Identify strategies to prevent and resolve authorship challenges with their own research
