Welcome To The Bitchery

A question for academics

Could you share with me tales of negotiating authorship order? I’m in a bit of a challenging situation, and need to have a discussion with everyone involved. I am not sure that there will be strong feelings about it, but I still want to be very respectful and handle it well.

If you’ve done this, or have seen others do this - either well or disastrously, please share your stories!

UPDATE: Thank you everyone! After laboring and mulling for hours this morning, I pulled the trigger and sent an email to everyone involved suggesting we discuss who is doing what and how that may affect authorship, as the paper has changed drastically. Not a peep yet.
