Online library support for PhD students
Way forward – continued skills development
Phdontrack.net is constantly evolving. Together with different PhD programs, we tailor additional content for different disciplines. Feedback from PhD students is an
essential part of the process. PhD on Track exists as a stand alone resource as well as a support for lectures, workshops and seminars that we offer at our universities.

Using PhD on Track
PhD on Track illustrates challenges, demonstrates procedures, explains principles inherent to research and provokes reflection (Fig.2).
The Norwegian National Library provided financial support. Design, programming and video content by The Centre for New Media,
Bergen University College. We thank the contributing libraries for their support. Also, thanks to a dedicated project group.

EXAMPLES OF UNJUST AUTHORSHIP
Increased demand for PhDs in society has triggered both an increased focus on transferable skills in PhD education and an expansion of PhD programs, leading to a more
diverse student body. Phdontrack.net, launched in 2013, was developed to support information literacy as an outcome of PhD education (Fig. 1) .

Gift authorship –
a person that does not fulfill
the criteria for co-authorship,
but has such a strong position
within the research group, that
he/she can expect or demand
Guest authorship –
prominent people that are
asked or pressed to be on the
by-line because one expects
this will strengthen the project
and the possibility to get
published. For the same
reasons, persons can also be
put on the by-line without
Ghost authorship –
persons that fulfill the criteria
for authorship, but are left out
of the author list, either with or
without their consent. This is
especially a problem when it
comes to authority within a
research community. A
supervisor might not always
protect the rights of the
students and younger
researchers in the group.

Building PhD on Track
Selected topics and perspectives in PhD on Track were developed according to the study by Gullbekk, et. al. (2012) of PhD students’ information behaviour. The study
included focus group interviews with PhD students and supervisors across different disciplines, and a literature review of 55 unique studies.

DILEMMA – HOW TO LIST AUHTORS IN A COLLABORATIVE WORK?
A PhD student has been working on an article in collaboration with her supervisor and other students. What to do if
there arises a dispute over co-authorship?
