Journal and Book Publication Authorship
This section applies to existing graduate students who are publishing in peer-reviewed journals as lead or co-authors with departmental faculty members.
Objective: Recognizing that the research enterprise necessitates effective, attributed communication of original works by scholars, the faculty of the Department of Environmental Science & Policy outline below general guidelines for attribution of authorship for intellectual property. Because the definitions and appropriate order of authorship differ among the various disciplines and professional journals, as may standards for “substantial” and “scholarly efforts” or the extent to which authors must participate, students and faculty of the Department and their collaborators are encouraged to read and discuss these guidelines prior to entering into, at the inception of, and/or at critical stages of collaborative research and academic partnerships
As drafted by the ad hoc Committee on Authorship Issues, September 26, 2012 and minor revisions, November 2, 2012 – Approved by ESP Faculty November 6, 2012.
