"Newton did not contribute to the debate until after Hooke's death, 32 years after his original publication... In the opening sections of the book, Newton showed how to reconstruct his prism experiments in more detail. "

but it also says the guidelines aren't meant to exclude people who dont' contribute to the writing, so all substantial contributors to various facets (although programming isn't mentioned, just analysis) should be "given the opportunity" to be author by conributing to writing

Right. Authorship guidelines such as the ICMJE used by over 3,000 journals say you must contribute to the drafting or revising of the manuscript.

I'm interested in examples of significant contributions not recognized by authorship. Let me know (or DM me) if this happened to you and you're happy to share.

vague! And that exacerbates the tendency of those high on self-advocacy (men? other groups?) differentially getting credit.

"intellectual" contributions and writing-related contributions, doesn't do that. So we either need to replace authorship with contributorship, or extend authorship with a formal contributor scheme. Totally understand the ickiness of advocating for yourself where things are so

Authorship guidelines often say an "intellectual" contribution is necessary for authorship. Anybody know anything about the history of use of this term? I worry that it can result in data collectors, programmers, and library specialists not receiving credit for their work.

Science - it doesn't use secret recipes or secret discoveries. We publish our detailed methods and findings in our papers. But usually to see them, you are supposed to pay.

Let's see, University of California subscribes to Elsevier each year or supports summer research positions and changes 2,200 undergraduates' lives each year, forever?

"As to killing rulers, it depends entirely on the position of the ruler. If it is the Russian tsar, I most certainly believe in dispatching him to where he belongs. If the ruler is as ineffectual as an American president, it is hardly worth the effort. There are, however, some
