This worrisome trend has been on the minds of Peggy Mason at the University of Chicago and Maria Sol Bernardez Sarria of Yale University, formerly associated with the Ethics Committee of the Society for Neuroscience, which publishes the (Mason as Chair from 2013 to 2015, and Bernardez Sarria as assistant).

In this capacity, they regularly scanned several websites and journals for ethics-related information, and developed an approach that might give away sold authorship..

The latter is also considered when applying for funding and academic promotions.

The pressure on academic faculties to publish, as well as research projects increasingly being the product of inter-disciplinary contributions, has led to a growing number of authors being listed on papers and authorship issues have ensued that address authorship issues seem to agree that an author is someone who has made a great contribution to the research and takes responsibility for the published paper.

We concluded that non-institutional email addresses are present in many legitimate manuscripts and institutional email addresses are present in at least some suspected fraudulent manuscripts.

We were also aware that certain criteria (2-5) would be common for early career scientists or trainees.

We specifically speculated that addresses at Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, and their foreign equivalents could be indicative of a fraudulent manuscript.

However, we found that the use of non-institutional email addresses is too widespread to make it a useful criterion.

Conversely someone who only provides funding for the paper does not deserve to be listed as an author.

Criteria to attribute authorship vary among institutions and research groups or sometimes authorship may be attributed without following any criteria at all.
