Authorship and publication practices

It is vital that the parties involved in research and publication discuss and agree on:

  • authorship
  • recognition of other contributions
  • acknowledgement of sponsors
  • declaration of any conflicts of interest

The University's Office for Research Ethics and Integrity has developed an Authorship Policy and an associated set of procedures and guidelines.

 Research Integrity Advisors

If you have any concerns about the integrity of research, e.g. if you think authorship on a publication hasn't been fairly decided or that someone has stolen some of your original work, you should speak to a Research Integrity Advisor (RIA). RIAs are able to provide advice to any member of the University community who has concerns.
