That's Teamwork

I received my latest issue of the Journal of Rheology yesterday as was taken aback by the last article in it - here's a scan of the first page:
I don't know if I've ever seen 7 authors from 5 different institutions before for a run-of-the-mill paper before. Sure there are the blockbuster papers such as those of the human genome, and the eventual papers on the Higgs boson, but this is just a 22-page long rheology paper.

My first paper has a similar-looking author list. If you have a project that is a collaboration between two universities and takes a while to get something published, you can easily have two professors, an industry/funding contact, and four grad students, two of whom are at different universities than when the research was done.
