TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
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?
