One of my applications is asking how many first authorships/junior authorships I have, and I'm not sure how to answer the question. I have four publications, two of which I'm the sole (and thus primary author by default), but the other two are more complicated. One I published during law school and was written in conjunction with two other people. However, legal journals don't really have a first/second author thing; they just list people alphabetically. Since my last name was last in the alphabet, I was listed last. But what do I call this on my applications? And how do I cite it in APA format? I don't want to give the impression I did less work than the other two authors, but I also don't want to claim false credit. As for the other publication, it's a revised version of my senior thesis. I did all of the research for it, but my mentor said that I wouldn't be able to get it published without her name on it. So, she wrote the introduction and her name was listed first. How do I get that information across in my applications? Should I just list my thesis as an unpublished manuscript and the revised version as a second publication? I also did a presentation on the thesis at a conference, but once again my mentor was listed in the program. However, I was the only one at the conference.... So, am I first or second author for the presentation? Any input would be great!
