I have experienced a case of misappropriation in research. My project manager resubmitted our joint paper to a peer-reviewed journal behind my back and excluded my name. More to say, starting from the idea, data analysis, econometric estimations and whole first draft of the paper were solely done by me.
To cover it up, she made an official complaint to the director that I did violate good scientific practice. It was severely investigated, but luckily it was concluded I am not guilty.
However, when I reported about her fraud, it was just swept under the rug. Where is the justice?
