Publication Practices and Responsible Authorship
Dissemination of research findings is an essential responsibility for investigators, thus it is important we assure the integrity of the process. This chapter examines various publication practices that guide dissemination, and authorship issues that may arise in the process, such as determining authorship credit and order of authorship. It also discusses special authorship considerations when publishing with students or community partners. Topics of open access publications, copyrights, and sponsor rights in publication decisions are covered. The chapter also presents information on the peer review process. The accepted view is that anonymous peer review with well-qualified reviewers is necessary to assure quality in the content and science of published articles, conference presentations, and grant proposals. This chapter discusses the purpose of peer review and the responsibilities of a peer reviewer.
