Although this sounds intuitively plausible, these results were restricted to articles published in a single journal, and in only one research area, about 30 to 40 years ago since then, we've seen an increase in papers authored by an extremely large number of researchers, most notably the atlas collaboration papers. Single author papers highlighting original research published in prestigious peer -reviewed journal assume an important role critical reviews, case reports, being a co-author of a large multi-author paper assume lesser significance letter to the.

A physics paper with 5,154 authors has — as far as anyone knows — broken the record for the largest number of contributors to a single research article only the first nine pages in the 33-page article, published on 14 may in physical review letters, describe the research itself — including references. In particular types of research, including particle physics, genome sequencing and clinical trials, a paper's author list can run into the hundreds in 1998, the collider detector at fermilab (cdf) adopted a (at that time) highly unorthodox policy for assigning authorship cdf maintains a standard author list all scientists and.

A long list of papers attached to a job application tends to impress appointment committees, and the resulting pressure to churn out a steady stream of articles in peer-reviewed journals often leads to the splitting of results from a single study into several “minimum publishable units”, to the unnecessary. The trend of increasingly long author lists on research papers is clearly getting out of hand in addition to being in addition, if the same rules for assessment are used across fields, this can leave fields where single authors or smaller teams are still the norm at a disadvantage for this reason, we need to. Multi-author papers are commonplace in most fields today and in some (mine included) there is almost a negative to be sole author (it seems as if you do not collaborate) this view in your case, the way you have described it, it seems silly to put your research into another paper if it can stand alone.
