Abstract: This seminar will cover the ethics of credit for publication especially focusing on how credit is negotiated among lab workers at different stages of their careers and among collaborators from different institutions. After discussing who is entitled to credit and the potential for conflicts about this issue, Dr. Walling will facilitate a workshop to help participants practice having difficult conversations about credit and other touch points for conflict in scientific practice.
