Authorship and Credits

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the issues of authorship and credits in clinical trials. People named as authors are required to certify that they made substantial contributions to the conception and design, or acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data; the drafting of the article or the critical revision of it for important intellectual content; and the final approval of the version to be published. All three conditions must be met under the Vancouver Convention requirements for authorship. The credit lists accompanying manuscripts are of great importance, especially in multicenter trials. These lists provide data essential to understanding the results and in regard to how and where the trials were done.
