Question Title

* 1. SCENARIO B: The following year, a different group of researchers at different university uses this same equipment set-up in a research project to study the movement of pollen from GM crops to non-GM fields. They recycle the description of the apparatus verbatim from Paper A.

Question Title

* 3. Same as above (Sarah has completed her PhD and taken a faculty position at a different university. She is now collaborating with a new group of colleagues doing new studies on coal emissions.) 

SCENARIO C2: She recycles the apparatus description from Paper B (on which she was an author)

Question Title

* 4. SCENARIO D: Later in her career, Sarah and a colleague named Karen have been collaborating on a research project. The two are asked by a major newspaper to co-author a story explaining their research for an audience of non-scientists. While drafting the piece, Sarah comes up with a really clever and insightful joke related to their research. It’s one of her favorite parts of the story. A year later, Karen writes a "Commentary" which is published in a high profile scientific journal—and she recycles Sarah's joke, almost verbatim, from the newspaper story they wrote together.
