  1. Orphan Papers and Ghostwriting: The Case Against the ICMJE Criterion of Authorship.Barton Moffatt - 2013 - Accountability in Research 20 (2): 59-71.
    Although popular, I argue that the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) account of authorship is flawed. It inadvertently allows for practices that it was designed to prevent. In addition, it creates a new category of authorless papers—orphan papers. The original World Association of Medical Editors (WAME) criterion is preferable.

  2. Responsible Authorship: Why Researchers Must Forgo Honorary Authorship.Barton Moffatt - 2011 - Accountability in Research 18 (2):76-90.
    Although widespread throughout the biomedical sciences, the practice of honorary authorship—the listing of authors who fail to merit inclusion as authors by authorship criteria—has received relatively little sustained attention. Is there something wrong with honorary authorship, or is it only a problem when used in conjunction with other unethical authorship practices like ghostwriting? Numerous sets of authorship guidelines discourage the practice, but its ubiquity throughout biomedicine suggests that there is a need to say more about honorary authorship. Despite its general (...)

    Conflations in the Causal Account of Information Undermine the Parity Thesis.Barton Moffatt - 2011 - Philosophy of Science 78 (2):284-302.
    The received view in philosophy of biology is that there is a well-understood, philosophically rigorous account of information—causal information. I argue that this view is mistaken. Causal information is fatally undermined by misinterpretations and conflations between distinct independent accounts of information. As a result, philosophical arguments based on causal information are deeply flawed. I end by briefly considering what a correct application of the relevant accounts of information would look like in the biological context.

    Research Funding and Authorship: Does Grant Winning Count Towards Authorship Credit?Barton Moffatt - 2014 - Journal of Medical Ethics 40 (10):683-686.
    It is unclear whether or not grant winning should count towards authorship credit in the sciences. In this paper, I argue that under certain circumstances grant winning can count for credit as an author on subsequent works. It is a mistake to think that grant winning is always irrelevant to the correct attribution of authorship.

    “A Reexamination of Biological Information From the Perspective of Practice”.Barton Moffatt - 2009 - Society of Philosophy of Science in Practice Conference Paper (2009).
    Much of the debate surrounding the concept of information in biology centers on the question of whether or not biological systems ‘really’ carry information. The criterion for determining if a system “really” carries information is whether or not there is a principled, theoretical account of information that captures the relevant biological usages. If biological systems do not carry information in this sense, information talk is termed merely heuristic and dismissed as philosophically uninteresting. To date, all three proposed theoretical accounts of (...)
