Imagine you are a chemistry graduate student working in a computational chemistry laboratory at a reputable University. Your Principle Investigator (PI), Dr. Hanel, just applied for a grant to fund some of the ongoing projects in the lab, yours included. The reviewers were not kind. Being that Dr. Hanel is in the early phase of his career and not well published, the reviewers denied his grant proposal but gave him some "helpful" advice. They told him that he needed to have more first-author publications. In addition, they said that he needed to collaborate with a "real computer scientist" and that someone with his background was not sufficient enough to complete the project. The latter was a rather destructive comment. Although Dr. Hanel got his PhD in Chemistry, his dissertation topic was highly computational and he even holds an MS in Computer Science. Since then, Dr. Hanel has been a lot more on edge, pushing you and the other two graduate students in the lab to pump out as much work as possible- giving you strict deadlines on experiment designs, figures for a paper you are co-authoring with him, and other written content.It has been two months since the review and you have accomplished a lot. Dr. Hanel is pleased with the work you have done. He asks you to look over the paper that you co-authored with him and a couple of other faculty. As you read the paper you notice that Anya Dickson, a member of the Computer Science department, is listed as the fourth author after yourself.
