"It’s ridiculous to see 524 authors listed as having written a paper. Did most of them just contribute a comma or a period?"

Above link and quote of Stanford Full Professor John Ioannidis published on Science 2 days ago about "hyperprolific authors" (that on average publish a paper every 5 days) that in the email below are termed "Prima Donnas". How come an area that represents less than 20% of the scientific production has 50% of hyperprolific authors? Could it be the same reason why this area has around 60% of all retracted papers ?

Assunto: Finding prima donnas in academia

There are several definitions of prima donnas in academia, an accurate one is related to those free loaders who profit from the work of others, having their name in papers while doing nothing on them. And the trend of papers with dozens, hundreds and even thousands of co-authors just made that "crime" easier. ... ecognition

A way to find those may encompass tracking their (absent) peer review record because those who are used to profit from the work of others are not a little bit interested in accepting review tasks. So in a couple of years when Publons expand its numbers to several million reviewers it will be possible to detect those who do not have any reviews but strangely have a lot of publications. I´m confident that detection would be much easier the moment that Elsevier stop running in its private lane and share its review records with Publons.
