Mark Lewis: Authorship sequence is broken

Mark Lewis retweeted Scientists Who Lift’s post, adding:

“Authorship sequence is broken.

The first author/senior author bookends tend not to fairly order the proportionate contribution to the manuscript.

The most work I’ve ever done on a single paper earned me second place in a list of seven. ”

Quoting Scientists Who Lift’s post:

“What unpopular academic opinion would get you in this situation? (the photo)”
