Expectations in publications vary across research areas.
Patterns of publication also vary. An experimental physicist who participates in several collaborations may get his name on all papers published by each collaboration, regardless of the amount of his direct contribution to any particular paper. Also, in some fields it may be common practice to divide a single project into small "publishable chunks" so that a single experiment can generate several papers, focusing on different stages of the procedure, or different aspects of the results.
