• Three types of unacceptable authorship: (1) ‘Ghost’ authors, who contribute substantially but are not acknowledged (often paid by commercial sponsors) , (2) ‘Guest’ authors, who make no discernible contributions, but are listed to help increase the chances of publication, (3) ‘Gift’ authors, whose contribution is based solely on a tenuous affiliation with a study;
