Giving Techs Credit

In my own lab it is very complicated whether a technician gets credit
or not. Some researcher want a 9 - 5 job that does not require any
research responsibility (i. e. the glassware washer) whereas others do
and truly work as independent researcher.  These are the extremes that
occur very infrequently...most of the time the technicians are in a
grey area and it can be very difficult to draw the line..thus each
individual paper must be considered in itself for all authors...
