Article by Dr. Chris Parsons makes Elsevier Connect’s Top 10 Stories of 2014

Congratulations to ESP associate professor, Dr. Chris Parsons, for making the Elsevier Connect Top 10 Stories of 2014 list!  His article, co-authored with two other scientific authors, is entitled “Co-authors gone bad – how to avoid publishing conflicts” and was posted to Elsevier Connect on July 9, 2014.  A version of this editorial also appeared in the July issue of Elsevier’s Biological Conservation journal.

About Elsevier Connect:

In 2014, the 300+ stories on Elsevier Connect featured everything from free-access programs to how to submit an article editors will take seriously — or deal with “co-authors gone bad.” We selected those with the most unique views to feature in our Top 10. Overall, Elsevier Connect received nearly 1.4 million views in the past year.

Our contributors are members of the global science and health communities — researchers, professors, students, medical practitioners, librarians, authors, science writers, and the publishing colleagues at Elsevier who work closely with them, many having worked as researchers and clinicians themselves.
