Editorial: how to avoid conflicts when publishing with co-authors

ESP associate professor Dr. Chris Parsons has teamed up with fellow scientific authors Richard Primack and John Cigliano in an article that shares helpful publishing advice for co-author teams. The article presents examples of conflicts, recommendations for avoiding conflicts, and a basic co-author agreement for a scientific project.

Elsevier Connect recently featured it on their Publishing Tips section (July 9, 2014):
