Abstract:

Confusion may arise when determining how to properly credit authorship of scholarly work when the work was conducted by multiple individuals. Unfortunately, there is no consensus among disciplines, journals, publication formats, and sponsors of live dissemination venues (e.g. conferences) on how authors are to be identified, listed, or cited. Without standards for author attribution and citation, teams conducting scholarly work must determine and agree to principles for appropriately acknowledging each member’s contributions at the project onset. The following discussion and recommendations may be helpful to the nursing profession by providing consistent guidelines related to publication and dissemination of scholarly work.

Description:
Determination of authorship roles and conventions for citation are complex and potentially controversial processes, due in large part to varying standards across disciplines and dissemination venues. Consideration of these recommendations provides consistent methods to appropriately acknowledge the contributions of co-authors, thus reducing conflicts among authors and confusion among the consumers of scholarly work.
