Transparent Author Credit [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Authorship on papers is one of the major currencies of the scientific enterprise. Nevertheless, the contributions of different authors to a given paper have remained relatively opaque. Contributions are generally inferred from the order of authors, and implications of position on the authorship list vary between different investigators and scientific fields. A year ago, a group of editors and publishers across a wide range of disciplines met to discuss how to provide a more systemic solution to make author contributions more transparent. This week, their recommendations have been released (www.pnas.org/cgi/doi/10.1073/pnas.1715374115), and I applaud this effort and urge the wide adoption of this system.
