Yes, Authorship Is Important

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


One of the key issues to be resolved when submitting a paper to a journal is to determine the authorship. This involves determining who should be an author and the order in which the authors are listed. For those working in academia, this is important because publications and citations can influence promotion and tenure. The influence of authorship may not be as critical in other work environments, but it is still important to reflect fairly the contributions individuals make to a paper, whether they work in academia, consulting, healthcare decision making, or healthcare industries.
