Talk Title: Lessons From Publishing: Do Researchers in Developing Countries Receive Credit for Their Work?
My laboratory is working to better understand if scientists in developing countries, where the majority of plant biodiversity occurs, are receiving proper scientific recognition for their research in the form of authorship in the peer-reviewed literature. We are also interested in promoting shared, accessible data that may be used in future studies to make novel advancements in the biological field. Our research thus far indicates that many scientists in developing countries are not being included in the published literature as authors
