HIPRC follows the recommendations of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors for defining authorship of manuscripts and other scholarly products. The ICMJE’s recommended criteria for authorship are:
Initial project discussions should establish a list of anticipated co-authors. Changes to the list, including additions of new co-authors and order of authorship, should be agreed upon by all co-authors.
For projects that, after discussion with the involved Research Core members, involve assistance that does not meet the ICMJE criteria for authorship, please acknowledge HIPRC’s role on all scholarly products, including publications, conference presentations, and posters. Agreement on authorship versus acknowledgement must be agreed upon by all collaborators.
“The authors are grateful for the support and technical assistance of the Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center at the University of Washington, including [core member’s name] for their help with data analysis and [core member’s name] for their comments on an early draft of the manuscript.”
Please acknowledge HIPRC’s role on any of your publications, conference presentations, or posters that benefit from the INSIGHT Training Program, including work with a trainee whose involvement does not meet criteria for authorship.
“The authors would like to thank [trainee name] and the Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center’s INSIGHT Training Program for their contributions to the study. This work was supported by the National Institutes of Health 5R25HD094336-02 through the Pediatric Injury Prevention Student Internship (INSIGHT) Training Program.”
HIPRC staff and faculty affiliates are expected to include HIPRC among their author affiliations.
Please contact HIPRC (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions about this protocol.
