7. Unfortunately, this still holds true today. If you are an assistant doing research funded and under

a published scientist, they get first line credit.

She did get second line credit which is huge on a scientific paper for any assistant, especially one with an important discovery.

I am in no way minimalizing her contribution and discovery, just pointing out a fact that remains in place to this day.

My son is a research scholar and while his name does appear on the published papers, until he is the scientist at the lead he will never be first cited on the list, regardless of his contribution.
