Authorship criteria

Below are links to resources for authors. We will continue to add more as we identify them.

Defining the role of authors and contributors - from ICMJE

Taxonomy of author roles - from CRediT 

Recent suggestions on detailing the contributions of authors - from Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology

Authorship conflicts and ghost and guest authors are prevalent in publishing. We will be adding links to research on the prevalence and characteristics of these issues below. Note that we have not yet identified research on these issues that is specific to complementary, alternative and integrative medicine. If you are interested in carrying out a project, please contact our Field as we would be happy to collaborate.
