Responsible Authorship in Engineering Fields: An Overview of Current Ethical Challenges

Science and Engineering Ethics 17 (2):355-364 (2011)
The primary aim of this article is to identify ethical challenges relating to authorship in engineering fields. Professional organizations and journals do provide crucial guidance in this realm, but this cannot replace the need for frequent and diligent discussions in engineering research communities about what constitutes appropriate authorship practice. Engineering researchers should seek to identify and address issues such as who is entitled to be an author and whether publishing their research could potentially harm the public
