Understanding New Patterns of Research Collaboration – Contributorship Issues

More and more frequently, research and scholarly publications involve collaboration, and co-authorship in most scholarly fields is rapidly increasing in frequency and complexity. Yet co-authorship patterns vary across discipline; the interpretation of author ordering is fraught with ambiguity; and richer textual descriptions of authorship are uncommon, and difficult to interpret, aggregate, and evaluate at scale.

There is a growing interest across stakeholders in scholarship in increasing the transparency of research contributions and in identifying the specific roles that contributors play in creating scholarly works. Understanding and accommodating emerging forms of co-authorship is critical for managing intellectual property, publication ethics, and effective evaluation.
