Abstract : Although a lot of studies question the notion of author, very little attention had been paid to scientific authorship. With articles signed sometimes by more than fifty names, scientific activity is however a strategic site to examine the author in general and to specify the attributes of the scientific author. This text shows that the collective side of scientific work require several shifts in comparison with the literary and legal conception of the author that close enunciation on a singular individual. From a standpoint focuses on action, the analysis claims the necessary dissociation of some acts that are generally considered as concomitant, indeed similar: “to write”, “to sign”, and “to be an author”.
