Merced Membership Meeting – Authorship disputes @ Science & Engineering II, Room 302 (SE2-302)
Nov 27 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Authorship and other forms of academic credit are of course important for our career advancement. We want to hear from you about how authorship disputes have impacted your experience as a Postdoc and how we can most effectively make progress on this critical issue in upcoming contract negotiations. Can you take a couple minutes to fill out our authorship survey?

Then join us for our monthly campus membership meeting where we’ll discuss disputes around academic credit, and strategies to make improvements in this area.

Lunch will be provided!
