Fragmentation of Research Papers: Some Commentaries
Received Date: March 05, 2019; Published Date: March 18, 2019
I would like to humbly comment on the very attention-grabbing paper published by  on ‘Changing trends in authorship patterns in the JPS: Publish or perish’, in Journal of Pediatric Surgery (2013;48:412–417). In my opinion, the good paper should be read by all academicians worldwide since it is not only on pediatric area but also very much has a positive connotation and connection in other areas or disciplines of study as long as a good scientific paper is concerned. Briefly, the paper has reasonably divided the explanations for the authorship pattern changes (or number of authors in published papers from three periods of study namely 1981-1986; 1991-1996; 2006-2010), into justified (ethical, acceptable) and unjustified (unethical, unacceptable) categories, according to the International Ethical Guidelines.
