Anybody here co-authored a paper or been privy to the process ? A high ranking professor has asked me to co-author a paper with him on Artificial General Intelligence, physics and neuroscience, primarily because I am still at university, and was very enthusiastic about his general approach. Also my primary area is neuroscience and computation where his is physics and computation.. so i can proof-check there is no major bloopers in the neuro-area. However on reading what he has written so far, I don’t agree with all the ideas he has about physics and information, which is central to the paper. I agree with some of it though. I have prepared objections, he seems pretty fixed, and I don’t see these making it onto the paper. So, what occurs in such co-author situations (there are no other author parties for this paper). I mean is it common for co-authors not to agree, but produce regardless ? I read some journal guidelines for co-authors a while back. It stated something like each co-author has to be responsible for the entire contents of the paper… so does this mean if I co-author I am stating I agree with everything in the paper ? Thanks in advance.
