When publishing, researchers should refer to the guidance from these 2 sites above and consider:

  • Have you reviewed authorship and contributorship agreements, when conducting the research itself?
  • Are agreements relating to intellectual property, publication, authorship, contributorship, international collaboration, and innovation being complied with?

Researchers should address issues relating to publication and authorship, especially the roles of all collaborators and contributors, at an early stage of the design of a project, recognising that, subject to legal and ethical requirements, roles and contributions may change during the research. Decisions on publication and authorship/contributorship should be agreed jointly and communicated to all members of the research team.
