ICMJE Guidelines - Defining the Role of Authors and Contributors

Stanford Authorship Policies

  • On Authorship
    • "Presents a systematic discussion of two related issues: first, the allocation of responsibility and credit for scholarly work; and second, those forces that are pushing toward a level of complexity in the conduct of research at which it becomes difficult to determine responsibility of authorship."
  • Multi-Authored Research Papers
    • "Presents guidelines for manuscripts produced by multi-investigator research teams, addressing coherence, review, co-authorship, and maintenance of data."
