ABSTRACT
This editorial discusses ways in which contemporary graduate students and post-doctoral fellows have developed different attitudes since when the author was in graduate school. While students once considered themselves to be working on pieces of a project that was owned by the professor, contemporary students believe that they personally possess all research and research materials. The author argues that this contemporary assumption is incorrect.
