An Empirical Study of Gift Authorships in Business Journals
Manton, Edgar J.; English, Donald E.
Journal of Education for Business, v83 n5 p283-287 May-Jun 2008
The authors surveyed authors of business journal articles who had worked with coauthors at 30 colleges of business, regarding their experience with gift or undeserved authorships. Of 433 responding faculty authors, more than 35% reported having collaborated with a coauthor who had done very little work on a published article, and nearly 10% responded that they had a coauthor on a publication who had done no work. Of respondents, 95% reported collaborating with a coauthor in the same discipline. Of the authors, 66% indicated having worked with a coauthor in another business discipline, and about 33% stated that they had collaborated with a coauthor from a discipline external to business.
