Assigning Publication Credit in Collaborative Research.
Bridgwater, Carol Austin; And Others
Publication credit has taken on great significance with the advent of an increasingly competitive academic job market and the decline in federal funds for psychological research. Policies regarding assignment of publication credit help to mold the careers of academic psychologists. A sample of psychologists was asked to endorse what they considered to be the most appropriate solution to each of several hypothetical collaborative publication situations. Indications were that authorship should be awarded on the basis of scholarly contribution, with a general rank ordering as follows: research design, report writing, data analysis, and data collection. Neither the status nor the gender of the researcher in the hypothetical situations influenced the assignment of publication credit. (Author/CS)
