publicathion ethics

I agree that the head of the laboratory always has the final say. However
there are many times when students and advisors cannot reach an agree-
ment and in our department, they are helped a great deal by the official
committee which is set up for every graduate student. We have 2 faculty members
in addition to the supervisor  in charge of every graduate student. This committ
   ee doesn't do much while times are good
but it meets and discusses when there are difficulties. It seems to me
that the problems described here would be relatively easy to settle if
outsiders were in on the discussion. The supervisor has a lot at stake,
if he/she ever wants another graduate student.
