calls "writing's" association with "authorship" its "craft association"
iomedical collaborations are moreheterogeneous and socially diffuse in character and do notappear to have the same degree of multilayered, internalreview as HEP research collaborations. T
biomedicine is a less homogeneous group and so less internal trust
ichard Horton (1998, p. 688) editor ofThe Lancet, speaks, in fact, of “the shattered system ofacademic reward and its symptom, broken rules of author-ship,” a view which seems neither extreme nor marginaljudging by the tenor of the debate being conducted in thepages of the global biomedical literature (Klein & Moser-Veillon, 1999)

norificauthorship and data integrity, seem to be of especial concernto the biomedical community, given widespread media cov-erage of, and speculation about, fraudulent practice, theeffects of which, in both career and personal terms, can bedevastating (e.g., Kevles, 1998).
about authorship scandals in biomedicine
owever, multipleauthorship and hyperauthorship are not problematized byphysicists as they are by the biomedical community.
Multiple authorship is not problematised in the HEP community as it has in biomedicine.
Great overview of what is going to happen in article:
- History of authorship
- Survey of state of biomedicine
- "extent to which deviant publishing practices in biomedical publishing are a function of sociocognitive and structural characteris-tics of the discipline by comparing biomedicine with high energy physics, the only other field which appears to exhibit comparable hyperauthorship tendencies"
- Assess extent to which biomedical trends may foreshadow trends in other fields.
