How important are first author papers in comparison to say second or third author papers?

Published May 31,2017 By Richie

When it comes to the value of papers published and citations from those papers, how important are first author papers in comparison to say second or third author papers? A friend of mine has almost 87 citations from 2nd author papers in good journals but doesn’t have a first author paper yet.

Being the first author helps to show the actual leading contribution to the topic. It also can be used to prove the point of playing a critical role in the research conducted by the institution. There are no formal criteria on the number of first-authored papers, it only helps to support claims that are made in the petition. If your friend can show (in some other way) that his/her contribution is important, then it should not really matter.
