Higgs, CERN, LHC, author lists

Higgs authors – PubMed result – the author lists for the recent spate of papers on LHC (Large Hadron Collider) results from the CERN team and their colleagues are just silly. It’s important to credit everyone involved, but I’m fairly sure that a couple of names on the list are just cleaning staff and the tea trolley. Anyway, if they just cited “Cox, BE et al.” we’d all know who they meant!
