Hello everybody.

I am currently a PhD student and i am doing my second internship abroad.
I would like to ask if it is necessary to involve my supervisor from home university to the article that i am going to publish. She is not interested in my work at all. She wasn't involved in the whole process of writing, designing it and performing experiments. During my first internship she didn't even know where i went, she didn't know what i was doing there or what i am doing here. I showed her my project proposal but she wasn't interested at all. She didn't look at it, nothing.

What should i do?

Will the articles count to my results even there would not be her neme as a co-author?

I don't know Barb, I would think that you need to include her name as a secondary author...did you have supervision meetings at all during this time and is the article on materials/content/data that comprise part of your PhD? What rule does your university have on publications and authors? Generally, the rule here (Australia) is that you do include your supervisors as secondary authors even if their contribution was just basic supervision of your overall project. Personally , I think I understand where you are coming from and why you don't want to include her but my thoughts would be that, even so, you would include her as a secondary author as you were under supervision at the time of the study and data collection.
