Joanne Woodford will be leading a seminar on the conflicts between the publish-or-peril mantra in academia versus the ethical considerations of authorship.

The seminar will include presentations and discussions of some of pressing challenges in the area, for example multiple shared first authorship, author versus co-author versus contributor definitions, academic fraud, the rise of pre-print servers, and the increase in “prolific publishers”. The overall seminar aim will be to carefully consider such challenges and discuss potential solutions.

The seminar will be in English, and include a mix of presentation and group activity: so be prepared for discussion!
