Checklist for research project participants for agreeing on authorship

28.6.2018

Checklist helps participants in a research project to agree on authorship at every stage of the research.

To prevent disputes, the Finnish National Board on Research Integrity TENK recommends that researchers participating in research projects and other people involved in co-publications start a discussion, headed by a principal investigator or head of a research group, on the principles of authorship as early as the research planning stage, in good time before submitting the manuscript for publication.

TENK has published recommendations for research publications, which include the checklist below.
