In life science it was the standard practice that postdoctoral scholars and research associates colleagues include his or her postdoctoral advisor’s name when publishing research papers. The reasons being that first they were still considered trainees and they received advice and guidance from their advisors. Second they were financially supported by their advisor. In many cases the advisor applied for research funding which would be used to pay the trainee’s salary and benefits as well as covering research expenditures. Third the advisor usually carried out some of the work in the project such as designing experiments doing experiments and writing up the paper.
