I am a basic scientist doing biomedical research . . . . I frequently interact with Clinical . . . and spend a lot of time writing reports, grants, meeting abstracts and manuscripts for publication. Most of the time, I am acknowledged from my contribution but sometimes, the only name on the final version is the director of our . . . . In some cases, I guess this could be considered ghostwriting.

I think ghostwriting, especially at major academic institutions, is a common occurrence. If it comes down to a student or post doc’s word vs. a tenured faculty member - guess who wins?
