How many authors can a paper actually have?

3000 people - The number of authors on some research papers. Whose to blame if there is a mistake? (Picture from 'Behind the Curtain Blog)

While searching for a paper by my colleague Robin Underwood the other day, the Institute of Physics journal page gave me three hits. Second on a list was the paper I  was looking for:

  • The electromagnetic fields of a triaxial ellipsoid calculated by modal superposition

by Gordon Edwards and Robin Underwood. I smiled at how obscure its title seemed, and again at the first item on the list – a paper by  Bret Underwood entitled:

  • A breathing mode for warped compactifications’

which just seemed such a bewildering title. However, it was the paper below which blew my mind. But it wasn’t the title which was caught my eye

  • Charged-particle multiplicities in pp interactions measured with the ATLAS detector at the LHC

it was the author list – it contained 3048 authors covering more than 10 journal pages! Just in case you don’t believe me, I have reproduced the author list below.

The list made really made me think. Firstly, I was just amazed! And I report it to you like I might tell you that I saw a really big dog, or a giant tree – it is just an immense item, inspiring awe. Secondly, it made me aware of just how stupendous are the efforts that go into making an experiment work at the Large Hadron Collider. But it also caused me to reflect on the concept of authorship.

The affillitions listing  – where the authors were based – covered a further 9 pages and listed 175 separate insitutions! From my own experience, I can attest that writing a paper with authors from multiple institutions is difficult: it is ‘Tear-your-hair-out‘ difficult! So I can only imagine that this paper is actually authored by at most about a dozen people. Now these people know who who they are, and the fellow authors know who they are: but the paper doesn’t make it clear. And it should.

When I write papers I feel nervous about everything I say. I question every statement and ask if I can defend it. Why? Because exposing one’s work and ideas publicly is risking ridicule if you get it wrong. It is part of the discipline which keeps science on track: Authors take responsibility for what they write. When  a paper has more than 3000 authors there appears to be – from the outside – a kind of herd tactic that keeps a herd safe from predation by appearing so large that no individual is exposed to danger. So although it might seem aggressive or disrespectful, IMHO, the people who actually wrote the paper should be identified separately. Just a thought.

  1. teddnet Says:

    I always took a slightly contrary view about the risk of ridicule when I wrote papers. One of the established professors in my field, who was an ex mathematician, had looked at settlement of barnacle larvae on adult barnacles (by species) and completely failed to take account of the different sizes of the different species- a complete ignoring of the available surface area for settlement- that when as a PhD student I wrote a paper contradicting this, I wrote in draft, ‘Professor so and so is therefore wrong when he failed to take into account the smaller area of…’. I thought that’s just what you did in science- do your best, correct what’s wrong, knowing that sometime in the future you’re going to be wrong too. The concept of ridicule never came into my head- just the simple pleasure of finding a mistake and correcting it.

    I was told by my supervisor that I had to curb my ‘youthful polemic’. I had to look up the word polemic. Even now my view is to embrace the error and be glad that after correction I know more than I did previously. I was delighted to come across this TED talk which addresses the subject really well.

    Nevertheless the authors of a paper should be identifiable!
