Who Dunnit? Metatags and Hyperauthorship.
Davenport, Elisabeth; Cronin, Blaise
Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, v52 n9 p770-73 Jul 2001
When scholarly articles and clinical reports have scores of authors-what Cronin has termed "hyperauthorship"-the precise nature of each individual's contribution is often masked. A notation that describes collaborators' contributions and allows those contributions to be tracked in, and across, texts (and over time) offers a solution. A proposal for an XML-like "contribution" mark-up is proposed, and potential benefits and drawbacks are discussed. (AEF)
