saraConnor Posted October 30, 2021 Share Posted October 30, 2021 Recently, my ex-advisor (I switched labs) sent me a manuscript that I am listed as second author on. I haven't been given any information about this manuscript until the document was sent to me. I was asked to do specific formatting and to make "any edits that [you] think would improve the paper." The manuscript was sent to me entirely written, which also means the part that is my area of focus in the manuscript was already written. I'm really not sure how to add anything in the paper when the part that I would play a role in has already been entirely fleshed out. My main concern here is that this ex-advisor will try to say that I didn't contribute to the paper - but I really haven't been given the opportunity to contribute to the paper at all because I was never looped into the development or writing process of the paper. Does anyone have an recommendations or advice for this type of situation? Thank you!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
