AUTHORSHIP POLICY

Authorship in projects involving multiple contributors is a possible area of conflict. All publications will therefore be produced under the guise of a project team.

It is anticipated that key contributors would be counted as part of the standard authorship but that all contributors would be recognised in the final manuscript.

This would mean all contributors would gain a citable reference which can be verified by PubMed. For further information please refer to the example on the London Surgical Research Group Website(http://www.lsrg.co.uk/about-us/how-it-works).
