Is it a must for a PhD student to co-author its advisor? What about if the student writes a paper by itself? What about collaborating with friends?

    Your advising relationship has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not you must cite someone else's work. – JeffE Aug 6 '17 at 22:36
  • @JeffE, I meant to give them a co-authorship. Sorry – 0x90 Aug 6 '17 at 22:42

    Co-authorship to what? Publications related to the thesis work? All articles? – Morgan Rodgers Aug 6 '17 at 22:58

    "What about if the student writes a paper by itself?": if a student is capable of writing a (decent) paper all by themselves, well, that's good and let's celebrate the publication! What else? – Massimo Ortolano Aug 6 '17 at 23:11
