AbstractAn aspiring physics post-doc follows his advisors advice and submits a paper to a famous journal as sole author, even though his friend Lisa helped him in the experiment. This case discusses the conflict between friendship and personal relationship on the one hand and professional responsibility on the other and how that conflict can lead to an uncomfortable situation or even result in unfairness.
