2.5 Authorship and peer review

It's clear we must publish to advance an academic career, but it is not always clear who is entitled to be an author. How much work must I do to be eligible to be an author? Who makes this decision? How often and where may I publish work? May I publish simultaneously in conference proceedings and a journal?

The assigned readings address these questions, but ultimately you'll need local guidance from your adviser. Be prepared to raise these issues when adviser invites you to be a coauthor by reviewing Duke University's policy and clicking here for a sample video of what to expect.
