Ethical and Legal Considerations

Author Contributions

The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) encourages authors and journals to disclose authors' individual contributions to the work reported in published articles.7 Following this recommendation, a number of journals now publish lists of author contributions in the article’s “Acknowledgment” section.8 For example, JAMA publishes each author’s contributions, as shown in the example in the Box.
