This session offers a discussion on the most common problems authors face when they go through the publishing cycle:  from the moment they make a decision to write a paper to the moment the paper is published.  Enriched with case studies, this session will help you to better understand all aspects of  publishing ethics - including issues around co-authorship - and form the guiding principles of good publishing practice.  

Know your responsibilities and, more importantly, your rights!

Note:  This session was formerly titled 'Publishing Ethically'
