AbstractThe head of a lab, Dr. Conway has not published a paper in more than a year and is feeling the pressure. He asks to see his thesis student's lab notebook, and writes a paper based off of her results, even though the experiments that this data comes from are yet to be completed. He submits the paper to a journal, and lists his student as first author, though he never tells her about this paper.
