    In recent years there have been many revelations about ghost authors, who contribute to publications but are not credited, and guest authors, who do not contribute but are credited. Most medical and many other journals adhere to the authorship standards set by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), which were designed in part to combat the phenomena of ghost and guest authorship.

This brief paper illustrates these problems with an example, and concludes that the current ICMJE definition of authorship is both illogical and unethical

    Indiana University Purdue University IndianapolisKokomo Opalescent Glass (KOG) is a manufacturer of art glass located in Kokomo Indiana. KOG has high defect rates in their sheet glass production process that can vary greatly depending on operator experience and environmental factors. This project aimed to improve the repeatability of KOG’s sheet glass production process by enabling them to monitor the temperature at which glass sheets enter their annealing oven and to decrease their defect rate, which has historically been around 25%. Through integrating instrumentation and data collection into KOG’s production process, defects in sheet glass production were successfully decreased by approximately 10% in the weeks following the installation of the device created in this project.Electrical Engineering Technolog
