Do people need help with proposal writing? Terry A. May 23 Apr 1998 16:30 EST

 I believe there is no question that assistance in reviewing and
editing of professional papers and proposals is an accepted and valuable
practice.  However, I would like to raise a slightly different issue that I
think needs to be considered.  If a proposal is written largely by one
individual and another signs it as the PI, then I think the PI signing the
proposal could be guilty of misconduct by assuming responsibility for the
work of another.  I know that "ghost writing" is a generally accepted
practice, but I believe it should be avoided for many reasons, including
this one.
