I need your advice.

I wrote an article that will be published in an e-commerce magazine in May.
Although I did all the research and 90% of the writing and editing (before
it went to the publisher, of course), someone else's name will be in the
byline as the subject matter expert (which he *is*).

I knew this when I accepted the assignment. My question is this? Can I
ethically/legally claim that article as a piece of *my* published work? Or
does my name need to appear in the byline before I can accept credit?
