Authorship disputes sometimes occur. For example, 10% of researchers who have received a grant from the US National Institutes of Health admitted to assigning authorship “inappropriately.”50 In surveys of plastic surgeon authors, 29% reported being involved in a dispute with a colleague over authorship issues in 2003, and 22% reported being involved in such disputes in 2011....

Group, collaborative, or corporate authorship usually involves multicenter study investigators, members of working groups, and official or self-appointed expert boards, panels, or committees (see Box 5.1-1). These groups can comprise hundreds of participants and often represent complex, multidisciplinary and multinational collaborations; therefore, decisions about listing group authorship pose several problems and dilemmas for authors, editors, journals, librarians, and bibliographic databases...

At least 1 author must be responsible for any part of an article crucial to its main conclusions, and everyone listed as an author must have made a substantial contribution to that specific article.5 As described in 5.1.1, Authorship: Definition, Criteria, Contributions, and Requirements, many journals require authors to complete statements of authorship responsibility and to indicate specific contributions of all authors. In addition to improving the transparency of author responsibility, accountability, and credit, these policies may help eliminate guest authors and identify ghost authors....

Before proposals for identifying authors’ contributions began to be implemented, proposed guides for determining order of authorship ranged from simple alphabetical listings to mathematical formulas for assessing specific levels of individual contributions.44 , 45 , 46 However, even the most systematic calculations of contribution levels will require some measure of subjective judgment, and determination of order of authors is best done by the authors’ collective assessment of each author’s level of contribution. Moreover, as Rennie et al...

To ensure appropriate display in print and online journals as well as indexing, search, and retrieval in bibliometric databases, journals should follow standards for tagging (coding) the names of authors, nonauthor collaborators, and group authors.

The practice of publishing unsigned or anonymous editorials provides “vituperative editorialists” protection from adversaries or competitors when taking unpopular stands in the pages of their journals.35 However, without named authors and affiliations, readers lack information to judge the objectivity and credibility of such articles. Although this practice is the norm for newspaper editorial pages, it has fallen out of use in most peer-reviewed journals. One rationale for anonymity has been that editorials, signed or not, represent the official opinion of the publication or the owner of the publication. However, such anonymity distances the real author(s) from accountability. For many years, ...
