Ghost authorship

Today's BMJ reports a paper in PLoS Medicine, that found that it is quite common for people significantly involved in clinical trials, not to be listed as an author on the resulting paper. These people are quite likely to be statisticians, the paper found.

There is a discussion in PLoS Medicine of this paper, also.
