Recently, a postdoc in my research group asked for my help in preparing an oral presentation. Because we worked on similar projects, I was happy to send him slides from my previous presentation as a resource for ideas. And I also coached him in some of the potential questions he may receive from the audience.

I attended his presentation and saw that he used several of my slides, with a slight edit of the background color. I was astounded that he gave me no credit for those slides and did not even mention me in his “Acknowledgements” section.
