My master's advisor proposed to me a research point that was already published. I found another question, modified the methodology, and got new results, and I am planning to publish the work. He didn't help me during my work and was always telling me that he is not convinced of my ideas. When meetings became unproductive, I stopped visiting and continued on my own. Now, regarding the ethical rules of authorship. Should his name be included?
Update 1: I am adding more info:
- I am self-funded
- He used to tell me that he is not convinced without giving me reasons why. He simply was not interested and was underestimating me.
- My field is numerical optimization and I presented the work at a reputable conference in the field.
- He wants his name on it but, this was after it got accepted by this prestigious conference.
UPDATE: I asked a young faculty who I know personally and can trust. He suggested that I would need to respectfully discuss my contribution and the advisor's involvement in the paper with the advisor and reach an agreement on authorship.
