Prevalence of Honorary Coauthorship in the American Journal of Roentgenology
American Journal of Roentgenology, 05/30/2012
Bonekamp S et al. – A substantial proportion of articles had evidence of honorary authorship. The rate of honorary authors was higher among authors who worked in an environment where senior members were routinely added to all manuscripts submitted for publication, authors who perceived that a coauthor listed had only reviewed the manuscript, and authors who reported that someone suggested they should include an honorary author.
