Podcast 56: A conversation with two JAMA staffers on their research into “ghost” authorship and “honorary” authorship in the principal medical journals.
(2 votes, average: 4.50 out of 5)
We’ve seen research into this area before — 18 months ago, in fact. (We interviewed Joseph Ross back then in Podcast #2.) This time we interview Joseph Wislar, a survey-research specialist at JAMA, and Annette Flanagin, its managing deputy editor. They’ve just presented the abstracted results of a survey on ghost and honorary authorship that encompasses hundreds of articles from the principal medical journals.
