AbstractYou are working in a collaborative research project with another lab located halfway across the country, so it is rare that you have the chance to interact in person. You notice some important physics that have been overlooked by your collaborators, and feel that it should be published immediately. You write it up with help from your colleagues from your own institution, make yourself first author, and circulate the submission draft to the members of the research group at the other institution. The next day you get an angry phone call from their lead scientist saying that if you submit the paper, the collaboration between your two institutions will end. They are outraged that you are publishing the results with you are first author.
