Good Practice in Research: Authorship & Publication

Mon 24 Feb 2020


Have you ever faced any issues related to authorship within your research group or making a submission to a journal?

  • Who gets to be an author?
  • How do you start a conversation on authorship with your research team?
  • What approaches can be used to resolve an authorship problem?
  • How are mistakes handled in a published paper?
  • In what circumstances will a paper be retracted from a journal?

Using case studies and group discussion, this course will explore best practice from how authorship of a paper is decided to managing the challenges that can arise when working with publishers or editors. Discussions will include ‘grey areas’, common issues and pitfalls, and you will be given the opportunity to share your experiences and perspectives.
