In a preprint just disclosed authored by three professors of medicine in US and Netherlands in which the majority of participants were from the United States (26.4%), Europe (23.2%), and Canada (15.3%) and working in the health field, 90% of respondents report having made some kind of misconduct act and 60% of the respondents admit practices of fake authorship.

It seems that the health field looks very much like the wild west or is this happening in all scientific fields ?

Let´s not forget that medicine has a well know background of scientific wrong doings ! Of course if that fact has to do with the fact that some (notorius Colleagues in US) believe its an area whose agenda was captured by big pharma interests still needs further studies.

Should all the journals start a policy of forcing authors to disclose their contribution on papers ?

And is that solution effective or nothing more than a waste of time ? How its possible to prevent that authors simply lie about their real contribution ?

Wouldn´t be easier to just give a higher importance to the number of papers in which an author was the first author or the corresponding author by assessing the percentages of those in relation to their overall scientific production ? Or is it understandable that someone was just the first author or the corresponding author in less than 1% of the papers ? And what is to be the minimum acceptable percentage ?

Can the solution be found in the suggestion of John Ioannidis full professor of medicine at Stanford University who already suggested a change in the academic reward system http://journals.plos.org/plosmedicine/article?id=10.1371/journal.pmed.1001747%20%20?

Is this the case for academia to start givinh merit to signed pre and post publication reviews ?
