Important facts about authorship
- In the same way the editor is responsible for the publication, the author must take responsibility on everything he or she wrote.
- To be credited as an author, an individual has to have made a substantial contribution to the article, drafting it or revising it critically for important content.
- In case the work was conducted by a large group of authors and contributors, only the individuals who accept the responsibility for the manuscript will meet the criteria for authorship.
- All individuals who qualify for authorship must be listed as authors and each author should have a significant contribution to the work in order to be listed as such.
- Contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship must be listed in the acknowledgment section.
