Queries related to academic authorship, i.e., who should be an author, the order of authors, or special roles such as corresponding authorship.

The authorship in a publication is determined by a number of factors. Use this tag for questions on:

  • who should be an author of a paper,
  • how authors are ordered (note that this strongly depends on the field),
  • on the role of the corresponding author (note that this strongly varies between fields and even journals),
  • on joint first authorships and similar (in fields where the order of authors is relevant).
