Yesterday I posted about how co-first author @CJEMetcalf was described in a recent @ScienceMagazine article. Thanks to editor @johnstravis for replying. Sharing his response.
John Travis (@johnstravis):
@nataliexdean @ScienceMagazine @CJEMetcalf Thanks for asking. We strive to reflect credit and no disrespect was intended. We led with Mina because he’s the antibody specialist & PI on the grant (~$1.8 mil) for the COVID-19 pilot project, which arose from GIO concept developed with @CJEMetcalf. 1/2

Hi @ScienceMagazine. Thanks for sharing an innovative idea from a recently published paper, but why is tenured professor and co-first author Jessica Metcalf @CJEMetcalf not mentioned until paragraph 8? https://t.co/GBmbycYGiJ https://t.co/gckrNytqMM https://t.co/ZIQmhKAb6B
Jessica Metcalf’s important role in the conception of the idea is introduced here in the later history recap.
