Abstract:

As the number of authors on scientific publications increases,
ordered lists of author names are proving inadequate for the
purposes of attribution and credit.
• A multi-stakeholder group has produced a contributor role taxonomy
for use in scientific publications.
• Identifying specific contributions to published research will lead
to appropriate credit, fewer author disputes, and fewer disincentives
to collaboration and the sharing of data and code
