Publication strategy

Authorship guidelines

Designation of authorships will be based on the criteria of the Vancouver Convention (ICMJE) and the specific requirements of the relevant journal/publisher, and will depend on intellectual contributions on a case‐by‐case basis.
It is recommended that contributors who have made substantial intellectual contributions to an article are credited as authors if they meet the following 4 criteria:

  1. Substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work; or the acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data for the work; AND
  2. Drafting the work or revising it critically for important intellectual content; AND
  3. Final approval of the version to be published; AND
  4. Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved

Contributors who do not meet the above 4 criteria (non‐authors) should be recognized in the acknowledgement section. It is recommended that permission is obtained from contributors before they are acknowledged.

In cases where data are collected by a large group of collaborators, it may be relevant to publish a group author article. Group‐author articles involve members of the group who take responsibility for authorship of the article (named individual authors), and members of the group who do not take responsibility for authorship of the article but have contributed to the work that led to the article (non‐author group members) (CSE recommendations).
