    Navigating authorship?

    I know that having a publication looks great when applying to med schools, so I've made this desire clear to my PI. He already turned down one of my ideas for a paper (which was to expand my independent research poster) and gave it to a grad student to publish instead. Fine, I get that there's a...

    Could this possibly constitute research experience?

    I'm fairly certain it's a "no," but I thought I'd at least double-check.

    Co-first author on a paper, can you switch order on CV and ERAS?

    If you co-first author a paper, but the journal lists your name second on the official publication despite indicating co-author status, is it ethical to switch the order of their listing to put your name first on your CV or ERAS application? Of course, I would still indicate co-first author...

    How impressive is getting paid/published for research?

    So I met the PI whose lab I'm going to start working in and he mentioned that he would definitely pay me and if I wanted to do an independent project later on we could definitely talk about that, and he would support me in maybe getting it into something like PLoS. So I was super excited to hear...
